Orlík Chateau

Local nameZámek Orlík nad Vltavou
LocationOrlík nad Vltavou, Czechia

Orlík Castle is a château 500 metres northeast of the village of Orlík nad Vltavou, in the northern part of the District of Písek, in the South Bohemia Region of the Czech Republic. The original position of the chateâu, on a rock 60 metres above the Vltava valley, was altered by the creation of the Orlík reservoir in 1954–62, and the chateâu is now barely a few metres above the water level.

The meaning of the name Orlík stems from the word "young eagle". It is often suggested that this castle would have resembled an eagle or nest perched upon the rocky outcrop above a turn in the river.
