The Orlik Reservoir is one of the largest dams in the Czech Republic . It is a part of the Vltava Cascades. It lies in the South and Central Bohemia regions. The Orlik Reservoir was built between 1956 and 1966. However, the preparation for the construction began as early as 1954, before the approval of the government of Czechoslovakia. The Orlik Reservoir got its name after the nearby standing Orlík nad Vltavou Castle . It towered high above the river Vltava. At present, it stands only a few meters above the surface of the water. In the close surrounding of the dam, we can find another interesting site: the Castle Zvíkov. During the construction of the dam, 650 homes and several farm buildings were flooded. The reservoir is filled by water from the rivers Vltava, Otava and Lužnice. The maximum depth of the reservoir is 74 m, and it covers an area 24 km2. The crest of the dam is 91 m long. In the summer, the dam is used for water transport. The water from the dam is also used by a water power plant. The Orlik Reservoir is a suitable place for fishing and recreation. We can find here several campsites and recreational facilities around the reservoir.
