The French Charm of Castles on the Orlice River The tourist region in Eastern Bohemia, which is joined by the ridge of the Orlice Mountains, is still an undiscovered paradise for nature, winter sport and cycling enthusiasts. There are also historical monuments and cultural adventures. The phenomenon of Podorlicko includes castles and chateaux. You can find six historical settlements within a radius of nine kilometres, so it is no wonder that the wild Orlice River is similarly as charming as the French Loire. Moreover, there are still chateaux here that remain in the hands of ancient aristocratic families and, as such, it is not exceptional to meet their aristocratic owners. The destination has also been awarded at the European level. At the end of 2017, the chateaux were awarded the title of “Excellent European Destination” in the EDEN competition, which is organised by the European committee.
