Bartošovice v Orlických horách (German: Batzdorf) is a village in Hradec Králové Region of the Czech Republic. It has around 210 inhabitants.


The place was first settled between 1539 and 1557 as the first settlement of the Erlitztales; the first noted mention of the village was in 1557.

In September 1793, the church, St. Mary Magdalene, in the center of the village was burned to the ground after being struck by lightning. On August 4, 1906, the church built to replace the original was also destroyed by lightning, it was again rebuilt using funds donated by Oskar Parish baron von Senftenberg.

The village's elementary school was built in 1892.

Prior to 1918, this area belonged to Austria-Hungary. Between 1938 and 1945 it was considered Sudetenland; the Germans were driven out by the Beneš decrees in 1945/46.
