Must see · Historic Site · Castle
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.

  • 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!
