Dobra commune is located on DN 68A, a few kilometers south of the Mureş River. To the north is the Mureş Meadow and to the south hills, 200-300 m heights, which precede the Poiana Ruscă Mountains.
The climate is relatively humid, favoring a rich vegetation. The hills around the village are covered with grassland and deciduous forests. The most important watercourse that drains Dobra is the Dobra-Bătrâna River, which originates in the Rusca peak, and has the main streams of the Vadului, Țiganului, Ivanului, Cornet and Muncel streams. Dobra - Bătrâna River, 45 km long and 180 km² drained area (165 km² mountainous and 15 km² hilly), is the second tributary of the Mureş river that originates from the Poiana Ruscă. There have been numerous mills on this river until 1950.
From an ethnographic point of view, the town of Dobra lies on the border between the Forest Land and the Mureş valley.
On the territory of Dobra village were found traces of dwelling since prehistory. Before the end of the first millennium, there are the germs of a state formation. The first documentary attestation is from 1387 under the Hungarian name Jófű, a good adaptation of the original Slavic original name. Dobra is also certified as a fortress, whose ruins still existed until 1900, later being destroyed by the extension of the agricultural land.
