The ruins of the Orlík castle lie about 3 km north-east of the town Humpolec, about 625 m a.s.l.

There was originally a castle called Humpolec founded here in the middle of the 14th century. It was enlarged at the end of the 15th century, but by the middle of the 16th century it became derelict. The subsequent proprietors, the Trčka family, built a new residence - the Renaissance palace in front of the damaged castle in the 16th century. After the Thirty Years' War the castle was abandoned again and it quickly became ruins.
The tower, the gate and a part of the palace have been preserved up till now.

The castle can be found on the blue marked trail about 3 km far from Humpolec and on the yellow marked path about 3 km from the road Humpolec - Havlíčkův Brod (turning-off to the left in the small village Rozkoš).
The path of the instructional trail Březina also leads from Humpolec to the castle.
