Founded in the 13th century, Castle Loket seems like an illustration ripped out of a book of fairy tales. Just a short drive from Karlovy Vary, the castle is surrounded by the Ohre River. Thick walls gave the structure its nickname, the "Impregnable Castle of Bohemia." The fortress serves as a museum and national monument--every year, the town's opera festival uses the castle as its pretty backdrop.

Krásný hrad,kde při vstupu dostanete leták o historii hradu a celou trasu si v klidu projdete sami,bez průvodce.Hrad má velmi pekne udělenou expozici útrpného práva,dochovalého mobiliáře a zbraní.Dopo... more »A beautiful castle where upon entering you get a leaflet on the history of the Castle and the entire route you go through it yourself, without a guide. The Castle has a very nice granted exposure of torture, dochovalého furniture and weapons. I recommend a visit worth
Великолепный замок-город. Хотя замок и перестраивался после жизни там короля и исполнял функцию тюрьмы. Но виды великолепные, как будто попал в средневековье. Задумываешься, как же удалось построить т... more »Magnificent castle-town. Although the Castle and rebuilt after life there King and performed the function of a prison. But the kind of gorgeous, as if hit in the middle ages. Wonder how we managed to build such greatness in those times?!
Krásný středověký hrad na výrazném skalním ostrohu, ze tří stran obklopený řekou Ohří. Z vysoké hradní věže si můžete všechno pěkně prohlédnout z ptačí perspektivy, včetně náměstí s barokním sloupem N... more »The beautiful medieval castle on a distinctive rocky promontory, three sides surrounded by the river Ohri. From the high Castle Tower, you can see it all from a bird's perspective, including the square with the Baroque column of the Holy Trinity and historic townhouses. In the basement is authentically processed torture. Moving mannequins, illustrate the chilling screams and moans of prisoners. Gives the creeps. Very interesting. I recommend
Amazing experience. The castle has many different rooms to look at, and you really get the idea of the time from what you see. The torture and the jail rooms were terrifying and made me feel sick to my stomach. I would not recommend to go in with young kids or sensitive people. All the other parts of this castle are pleasant and wonderful.
Great castle. It was nice and roomy, unlike the usual cramped fortresses. It also has an interesting series of torture chambers. Great view from the tower.
The external of this castle ,standing at the top of a hill surrounded by river Ohre ,is imposing. In the interior there are some (not many) interesting things to see , like the very nice view from the top and an interesting, creepy torture museum in its dungeons. It also has a small weapon and other old objects collection.
Well preserved medieval castle, with convenient opening hours through the year! All rooms are open for visitors.
The most wonderfull castle in the meandr od river Ohře. You must see it!
