Ravazd is a village in Győr-Moson-Sopron county, Hungary.

King Ladislaus I donated it to the Benedictine Abbey of Pannonhalma. During the Ottoman invasion, the Cseszneky family also had noble estates in the village. The Turks destroyed the village, but in the 18th century, it was re-populated by Hungarian serfs.

Ravazd is famous for the fountain of King Béla IV.
