Dubliany (Ukrainian: Дубляни; Polish: Dublany) is a city in Zhovkva Raion, Lviv Oblast (region) of Ukraine. Population: 10,240 (2013 est.)[1].

In the early 20th century, it was famous as the seat of the Agricultural Academy, which for many years was the only existing Polish-language agricultural academy. In the Second Polish Republic Dubliany was part of Lwow Voivodeship. After World War Two its Polish residents were forced to leave the village, and move to the Recovered Territories (see Polish population transfers (1944–46)). Most of them settled in former German village Drachenbrunn near Wroclaw in Silesia. They renamed the village into Dublany (since 1947 - Wojnow, now a district of Wroclaw).

Dubliany is the birthplace of Polish painter Adam Werka, and long jumper Edward Czernik.
