Ruins of Orlík Castle

The period of greatest glory of Orlík came after the year 1802 with Karl Philipp Schwarzenberg.

When he was only 16 years old he started a brilliant military career, first in the personal guard of the Austrian Emperor, then four years later he was already a colonel and very soon a marshal and the commander-in-chief of anti-Napoleon troops. His 237,000 men then definitively crushed the French army of the Emperor Napoleon in the Battle of Nations at Leipzig in 1813.
