Skövde () (pronunciation: [ˈɧœvˌde]) is a locality and urban centre in Skövde Municipality and Västra Götaland County, in the Västergötland (Western Gothland region) in central-Southern Sweden. Skövde is situated some 150 km northeast of Gothenburg, between Sweden's two largest lakes, Vänern and Vättern. It sits on the eastern slope of a low mountain ridge, Billingen (299 m), which cuts through the plain between the lakes. The Western Main Railway (Västra Stambanan) was built through Skövde in the 1850s, which gave the town a dramatic industrial and population boost. Today, Skövde is home to the headquarters for Skaraborg’s District Court and is the Västra Götaland's fourth-largest urban area as well as Sweden’s 32nd biggest locality (by population) with 34,466 inhabitants in 2010.Wikipedia
