Zavet (Bulgarian: Завет, pronounced [ˈza.vɛt]; Turkish: Zavut) is a town in northeastern Bulgaria, part of Razgrad Province and located in the geographic region of Ludogorie. It is the administrative centre of the homonymous Zavet Municipality, which lies in the northern part of Razgrad Province. Zavet is situated in the western Ludogorie Plateau, 12 kilometres from Isperih and Kubrat and 35 kilometres from Tutrakan and Razgrad.

Zavet used to be a village in 1970s, when Ostrovo was the municipal centre. In 1974, Zavet was promoted to the municipal centret, thus depriving Ostrovo of its status.
