Orličky (German: Adlerdörfel , 1304: Reinprechtsdorf , 1588: Worlitschka ) is a village with 305 inhabitants in the district of Ústí nad Orlicí ( Wild Sword ) in Pardubický kraj , Czech Republic . It is located in the southern part of the Eagle Mountains between Letohrad (Geiersberg) and Králíky (Grulich).
The establishment of the place probably goes back to the colonization of the Bohemian King Přemysl Ottokar . This settled Germans in the area, most of whom came from Franconia . A glass-blowing factory used to be located at the highest point . Due to the high wood consumption of the glazier, the forests were cleared and new land was gained for further settlements. A second branch of industry was brushing. Due to the harsh nature, there was still not much work and many residents went to work as far as Prague . They usually only came home on public holidays. From 1890 on, most families moved to the industrial cities of Germany.
