Loket Castle is one of the oldest castles in the Czech Republic. It was built at the beginning of the 13th century. Soon after the castle was built a small town arose below it. This castle is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the Region of Karlovy Var nowadays. No wonder! Over two and a half centuries ago,... More

Moving, if you have plans to Loket Castle, I need really say: Go arround in the city, eat and drink there, one day its enought, and the city its more interesting than... More

We came at 9 a.m. on Sunday and it was a good decision. We had the option to explore the castle in solitude, with nobody around, and fully enjoyed it :-) Loket is a spacious medieval castle, with a strong tower, local dragon, ballrooms and nice views around. Also, the town around reminds of Cesky Krumlov, but is smaller, less... More

This is a great castle to visit - giving you a sense of adventure. Would probably be good for kids - had a little adventure in that we went in a little late and they started to lock up while we were just in the torture chamber!! Nearly had an overnighter there, if it weren't for us shouting loudly.

Charles IV spent few years of his childhood there and after his return from France he spent there a lot of time. During one hunting session he disovered hot springs in the nearby forests. He gave it the name Karlovy Vary - Carlsbad. The... More

The visitor parking lot is on the left side of the road, before the bridge. Very nice views of the castle from the bridge as well as from a small park left of the bridge. Did not visit the castle itself as we arrived late. Very nice small town. Had coffe at a small coffee house at the far end... More
