'''Sezimovo Ústí''' ({{IPA-cs|ˈsɛzɪmovo ˈuːsciː}}; {{lang-de|Alttabor}}) is a town in the [[South Bohemian Region]], of the [[Czech Republic]]. It has about 7,200 inhabitants. It is located approximately 83&nbsp;km south of [[Prague]], the capital of the Czech Republic, and 60&nbsp;km north of [[České Budějovice]], the capital of the South Bohemian Region.
 
==History==
The first mention of Sezimovo Ústí is from 1250, which means that the citytown was established in the [[13th century]]. In 1277 the citytown expanded because of the arrival of people from nearby [[Tábor]] which had been burnt down.
 
Sezimovo Ústí and particularly Kozí hrádek is closely connected to the [[Hussites]]. [[Jan Hus]], the man who inspired the [[Hussite movement]], lived there in 1414 and preached at Kozí hrádek.
In 1939 the entrepreneur [[Tomáš Baťa]] began building a new district of Sezimovo Ústí, nowadays called Sezimovo Ústí 2. Baťa built a factory as well as accommodation and infrastructure for his employees at the factory.
 
Sezimovo Ústí is divided into two parts which are very closely connected and work together as one citytown. The history of Sezimovo Ústí 1 goes back to [[Middle Ages|medieval times]], while Sezimovo Ústí 2 is much younger.
