Dolhasca (Romanian pronunciation: [dolˈhaska]) is a town in Suceava County, north-eastern Romania. It is situated in the historical region of Western Moldavia. Dolhasca is the eighth largest urban settlement in the county, with a population of 9,792 inhabitants, according to the 2011 census. It was declared a town in 2004, along with seven other localities in Suceava County. The town administers seven villages: Budeni, Gulia, Poiana, Poienari, Probota, Siliștea Nouă and Valea Poienei.
Despite being a town, Dolhasca looks like a rural settlement in many aspects, and the main occupation of the inhabitants is agriculture. The Probota Monastery, built in 1530 by Moldavian ruler Petru Rareș, is close to the town. Among Dolhasca's notable natives are comedian Alexandru Arșinel and neurosurgeon Constantin N. Arseni.
