Bologoye or Bologoe ( _ru. Болого́е) is a town in Tver Oblast, Russia, the administrative centre of Bologovsky District and a major railway hub. It is located approximately half-way between Moscow and Saint Petersburg on a railway route connecting the two cities. Population: 25,800 (2005 est.); 26,612 (2002 Census); 35,926 (1989 Census).

The first mention of Bologoye in historic records dates back to 1495, which is considered the settlement's year of foundation. The name "Bologoye" originates from a name of the nearby Bologoye Lake. In 1851 Bologoye became a station of the Moscow-Saint Petersburg Railway. In the second half of the 19th century, the Rybinsk – Pskov – Vindava railway passed through Bologoye, turning it into a large railway junction. Railway-related industries have contributed significantly to the town's growth. Bologoye received its official town status in 1926.
