Pavel Petrovich Bazhov (Russian: Павел Петрович Бажов; 27 January 1879 in Sysert – 3 December 1950 in Moscow) was a Russian writer.

Bazhov is best known for his collection of fairy-tale stories The Malachite Casket (“Малахитовая Шкатулка”), based on the Urals folklore and published in the Soviet Union in 1939. In 1944, the translation of the collection into English was published in New York and London. Later Sergei Prokofiev created the ballet The Tale of the Stone Flower based on one of the tales. Bazhov was also the author of several books on the Russian Revolution and the Civil War. The former Russian prime-minister Yegor Gaidar was his grandson.
