'''Sezimovo Ústí''' ({{IPA-cs|ˈsɛzɪmovo ˈuːsciː}}; {{lang-de|Alttabor}}) is a town in the [[South Bohemian Region]], [[Czech Republic]]. It is located approximately 83 km south of [[Prague]], the capital of the Czech Republic, and 60 km north of [[České Budějovice]], the capital of the South Bohemian Region.
The first mention of Sezimovo Ústí is from 1250, which means that the city was established in [[13th century]]. In 1277 the city expanded because of the arrival of people from [[Tábor]] which had been burnt (city in neighbourhood of Sezimovo Ústí).
The villa of late Czechoslovak president [[Edvard Beneš]] is located here.
Sezimovo Ústí and particularly Kozí hrádek is nearly connected to [[Hussites]]. [[Jan Hus]], the man standing at the beginning of [[Hussite movement]], lived there in 1414 and preached at Kozí hrádek.
In 1939 enterpreneur [[Tomáš Baťa]] set up building of the second part of Sezimovo Ústí, nowadays called Sezimovo Ústí 2. Baťa didn´t only build a factory, but also created great conditions for his employees. They had an opportunity to live in new houses, study to have better qualification for working in Baťa´s factory and gained many other benefits.
These days Sezimovo Ústí is divided into two parts which are very closely connected and work together as one city. The history of Sezimovo Ústí 1 goes back to [[Middle Ages|medieval times]], while Sezimovo Ústí 2 is much younger.
Sezimovo Ústí also cooperates with its neighbouring cities [[Planá nad Lužnicí]] and [[Tábor]].
