Tovačov (German: Tobitschau) is a town in the Přerov District, Moravia, in the Czech Republic, and site of a minor battle in the Austro-Prussian War of 1866.

On 16 July 1866, during the Austro-Prussian War, the Prussians defeated the Austrians in the Battle of Tobitschau. The Austrians had been retreating south after their defeat at the Battle of Königgrätz on 3 July, and the fresh defeat at Tobitschau forced them to turn east instead.
