In the 18th century it was one of the estates of the counts of Schaffgotsch. From the 1930s until 1945 the town was owned by Claus von Thiele-Winckler.In the Upper Silesia plebiscite of 20 March 1921 337 villagers voted to remain with Germany and 139 voted to join the newly created state of Poland. As a result, Dobrau remained in Germany. Until 1945 it was located in Kreis Neustadt O.S..In 1945 Silesia was given to Poland and the German population of Dobrau was largely expelled. The village was renamed Zielina and annexed to the newly created Silesian VoivodeshipSilesian Voivodeship]. In 1950 it was reassigned to Opole Voivodeship, and in 1999 reassigned from Prudnik County (formerly Neustadt O.S.) to Krapkowice County.
