Hodonín (Czech pronunciation: [ˈɦodoɲiːn]; German: Göding) is a town on the River Morava in the southeast of Moravia, in the Czech Republic. It lies in the South Moravian Region. The population is 25,479 (2011).

Hodonín was first mentioned in 1046. In 1228 it became a town. In 1850 Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk, the first president of independent Czechoslovakia, was born there.

In the vicinity of the town there is an oil field and a stratum of brown coal, which was formerly transported to the town of Otrokovice, a few kilometers from the city of Zlín, by the Baťa Canal, which was built by the Czech entrepreneur Tomáš Baťa and now operates as a tourist attraction.
