Orlík Castle is a chateâu located 500 m northeast of the village of Orlík nad Vltavou,[1] 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 m 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" (Czech: Orel). It is often suggested[by whom?] that this castle would have resembled an eagle perched upon the rocky outcrop above a turn in the River.
