Lovech Heights (Bulgarian: Ловешки възвишения, ‘Loveshki Vazvisheniya’ \'lo-vesh-ki v&-zvi-'she-ni-ya\) are the heights rising to 1700 m (Mount Persenk and Mount Moriya) on Nordenskjöld Coast in Graham Land, Antarctica. They are extending 15.5 km in east-west direction and 9.7 km wide, and are bounded by Rogosh Glacier to the northwest and south, Zlokuchene Glacier to the northeast and Weddell Sea to the east. Mrahori Saddle links the heights to Kyustendil Ridge to the north.

The feature is named after the city of Lovech in northern Bulgaria.
