The Orlicke Mountains, in Czech: Orlické Hory, are very popular with tourists and people who like active holiday. They are located at the border between the Republic and Poland . They attract tourists due to nature beauties and a top quality network of marked tourist trails for hiking, biking and cross-country skiing. There are several perfect resorts for downhill skiing.


The name of the mountain range is derived from the Orlice River. The highest summit of the Orlicke Mountains is Velká Deštná (1115 m) . A large part of the Orlicke Mountains is protected. The protected landscape area Orlicke Mountains occupies some 204 km2. In addition, there are numerous localities protected as nature reserves, national nature reserves or nature monuments.

Lookout towers and points

On the top of Velká Deštná (1115 m) , there is a not very high wooden lookout tower . It offers wonderful views of the surrounding landscape. If the weather is good, you can identify the summits of the Krkonoše , Jeseníky and also Gory Stolowe in Poland. Not far from there, there is Malá Deštná (1090 m) , the second highest mountain in Orlicke Mountains. There are also other lookout towers and lookout points in the Orlicke Mountains that offer views of the most beautiful parts of the mountain range. The third highest top, 1 084 metres, is named Vrchmezí. It is situated just at the Czech- Polish border. Tourists are usually impressed by the steep slopes of this mountain. In the past, there was a tourist chalet which burnt out in 1946.


On the other hand, you can come across a restaurant on the top of Šerlich - it is called Masarykova chata. It ranks among the most favourite tourist destinations in the region of the Orlicke Mountains. Šerlich is easy to access and it is a good starting point for trips. Not far from it you can come across a former mill (now used as a hotel) .

Military monuments in the Orlicke Mountains

The Orlicke Mountains are characterized by a special defence system which had been built from 1936 because of the threat of Nazi invasion. The system comprises small bunkers, called in Czech "řopíky", cannon forts and other objects. After the Munich Agreement in 1938, the defence system lost its importance. At present, a lot of its components are used as museums.
