Hi, I made 3D map and I want to render it in resolution 1024x768, 300 DPI and transparent background. I made one version with 72DPI in .png for web and presentations, but I need one more in 300DPI for print.

I went to render settings, set resolution, DPI to 300, format PNG, checked Alpha Channel and Straight Alpha, but when I render it and open it in Photoshop, it has only 72DPI. What am I doing wrong?

DPI is rather meaningless in Cinema. Just pick the pixel resolution you need and resize accordingly in your image application of choice.

Thank you, but just to make it clear. I'll render it for example in resolution 3072x2304 (3*1024x768) and then I'll resize it to 1024x768 with 300 DPI in Photoshop?

What I would suggest is to figure out what size you need for the printed output. Then go into PS and create a new document. Set the dimensions and PPI and PS will automatically give you the pixel dimensions. Then use those pixel dimensions in Cinema's render settings. That way you won't lose resolution from resampling.
