Tábor

Tábor (tä´bôr), city (1991 pop. 36,342), S central Czech Republic, in Bohemia. The city's economy relies on agricultural trade, tobacco, textiles, and the mining of kaolin. The city was founded in 1420 by John Zizka on a hill near the castle where John Huss had retired in 1412. Named after Mt. Tabor in Palestine, it became the stronghold of the Taborites, the extreme wing of the Hussites. Tábor retains the round tower of a 13th-century castle, many old houses, and a 16th-century town hall with a large collection of Hussite relics.
