Dve Mogili (Bulgarian: Две могили, pronounced [dvɛ muˈɡili]) is a town in northeastern Bulgaria, part of Rousse Province. It is the administrative centre of Dve Mogili Municipality, which lies in the western part of Rousse Province. Dve Mogili is located 32 kilometres from the provincial capital of Rousse.

The town's name means "two hills" and is derived from the geographic features of the surrounding area, namely the two hills near the town. Dve Mogili was first mentioned in the early 15th century. In that period, it had a Bulgarian population. In 1656, the village was inhabited by Bulgarians and Turks. During the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-78, it had 100 houses and a population of 550.

Dve Mogili was the place where noted Bulgarian hajduk voivode Filip Totyu (1830-1907) spent the last years of his life after the Liberation of Bulgaria.
