The Worskla ( Russian and Ukrainian Ворскла ) is a left tributary of the Dnieper in the Eastern European lowlands with a length of 464 km and a catchment area of ​​14,700 km².

It rises in the western foothills of the Central Russian Ridge near Iwnja, northwest of the Russian oblast capital Belgorod . From its source it flows in a south-westerly direction into the Ukraine , with the right bank cutting deep into the Poltava plateau in the middle reaches. The Worskla flows into the Poltava Oblast in the Dnepr, which is dammed up to form the Kamjansk reservoir .
