Pavlova Huť is a Nature Reserve within the Český les Landscape Protected Area in the western part of the Pilsen Region of the Czech Republic. It is named after a former glass works village (founded around 1740, destroyed after 1945) of the same name which was located nearby. It lies next to the boundary with Germany.

On an area of 35.82 ha (88.5 acres) the reserve protects a well-preserved bog spruce forest with typical fauna and flora. 100% of the area is forested, mainly by spruce. It is one of few places in the CHKO Český les where a spruce forest is native.
