Loket nad Ohří – the Loket Castle
The town of Loket was founded in the 13th century. It is dominated by the Gothic castle. Loket was declared the urban monument reserve in 1979. It was precisely the Loket Castle, from which the King Charles IV used to go for hunting. Apparently during one of the hunts his hunting entourage discovered the first Karlsbad (Karlovy Vary) hot spring.
The castle exhibition contains many attractions. Among the most popular is the castle prison with an authentic exhibition of torture, a museum of weapons and exhibition of porcelain.
