Mostek is a village and municipality (obec) in the Ústí nad Orlicí District, Pardubice Region of the Czech Republic.

Mostek lies approximately 11 kilometres (7 mi) north-west of Ústí nad Orlicí, 35 km (22 mi) east of Pardubice, and 133 km (83 mi) east of Prague.

Mostek is one of hundreds of abandoned villages in former Sudetenland along the Czech - Bavarian and Czech - Austrian borders. The former village was situated in the valley of river Radbuza established as glass furnace in 16th centrury. After the resettlement of the Sudeten Germans after the world war II the village has never been populated again. In the 90s an old stone bridge was restored.
