Castle Historic Site
Founded in the 13th century, Loket Castle 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.

  • Visited with friends in the Castle Loket-beautiful, interesting, liked the porcelain exhibition in the Castle, some straining to carry out repair and restoration works, but what is needed. I advise to visit the open-air theatre is very nice, because decorations for plays (classic) are stunning panoramic views of the surrounding nature.

  • There are two types of surveys with text or with a guide, which are only about a few euros more expensive. We chose a text option. We got the paper on which it was very similar to the text, as on the website of the Castle. The Castle offers an exhibition of dozens of exhibits of furniture, sculptures, paintings, but the most interesting is a piece of loketského meteorite, which was interested in Johann Wolfgang Goethe. You can also look into prison and torture chamber. It houses a collection of torture. In addition, the castle is not a lot to see, but certainly for the visitation is.

  • As wrote in the header of the Castle as a whole did not differ special. But the natural landscape around him, bending River, mountain-simply fabulous! In the castle there is the climb to the Tower, which offers good views. On the ground floor is equipped with a torture Museum. Have access to a large hall and several rooms. In the courtyard stands a statue Gotshtejna with cute legend for tourists. People like the subway at rush hour, perhaps so the impression is somewhat spoilt a bit. Once you visit.

  • One of the most beautiful castles i've seen to date. It's kinda small but its really cozy once you drive into the territory
  • Beautiful castle in an awesome location. Some good options for food an drinks as well. Ample parking space just outside of the castle area.
  • Awesome place. One of the few castles, where you can go anywhere without a guide. It's not so big but quite interesting. I recommend!
  • Historically good place. There were so many items in the castle. Even though it was so scary that prison under the plat.
  • Great place! Huge castle with many different exhibitions.
