The Orlicko region comprises the municipalities in the Association of Municipalities Orlicko in the Pardubice Region. It is presented in a wider spatial and temporal context as a border region experiencing the problems of a periphery. Development opportunities have thus far been seen to lie in the expansion of tourism. Sociological surveys revealed the heterogeneity of the Orlicko region: differences between rural and urban areas and the impact of the outsider symptom in the region.
