Klášterec nad Orlicí is a small tourist town in the Orlické Mountains, on the Czech-Polish border. It is a good starting point for exploring the picturesque gorge of the Wild Orlice and for mountain trips.
The origins of the village date back to the 13th century, and its name comes from a monastery located here in the Middle Ages. It was burned down by the Hussites and was never rebuilt. There is also a gothic Holy Trinity church with baroque interiors in the village.
The town has a very intimate character and many historic Sudeten huts have been preserved in its buildings. Today they are used as guesthouses and agritourism farms. For tourists, Klášterec nad Orlicí is a good starting point for the surrounding trails.
