Hova (Swedish pronunciation: [?hu:va])[2] is a locality and one of the two seats of Gullspång Municipality, Västra Götaland County, Sweden, the other is Gullspång. It had 1,288 inhabitants in 2010.[1]


The main part of the municipal administration is located in Hova, thus constituting the municipal seat. However, the municipality avoids the term seat (centralort) due to the rivalry between Hova and Gullspång some 20 km north-west. Instead it is called one of the municipality's two "main localities".

Celebrities from Hova include Stikkan Anderson and August Olsson.

Each summer Hova hosts a renaissance fair whose theme is the battle of Hova in 1275.
