Castle Loket, Loket

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.

  • The exhibition dries a bit, but the establishment of the whole castle and village is beautiful and worth staying here for a few nights. Ideal for those looking for the tranquility and beauty of the historic border lands and at the same time the availability of historic major cities such as Karlovy Vary, Marianske Lazne and Cheb, which are worth visiting.

  • Both the castle and the old town are always worth a visit. Entrance to the castle is affordable at about 5 euros.

  • Nice atmosphere. Interesting views. Would recommend to people interested in medieval castles and history. The castle bears historical significant value in the formation of Bohemia in general.
  • This castle is one of the best kept castles is Europe. It is just a wonderful place which has everything. From torture rooms with several floors under the walking level up to feast rooms with many old collections and a magnificent view. This is a big recommendation to see! Ticket price was something like 4 euro. With free parking 200 meters from the castle. And we've made a walking tour around the castle. Really great!
