The picturesque town of Loket has only three thousand inhabitants. It is located on a rocky promontory directly below the famous castle of the same name on the edge of the Slavkov Forest. The main artery of the city is TG Masaryka Street, where you will find all important local monuments.

View of the castle Loket

If you are coming to Lokte by car from the D6 motorway, you should park in advance on the edge of Nádražní Street. Although you will have to walk a few hundred meters more, but you will not have to look for parking closer to the center. In addition, it's free here and after a while, an absolutely magnificent view of the castle opens up directly from Ohře.

Bridge over the Ohře

There is also a view of the bridge over the Ohře River connecting the center of Loket with the road leading to Starý Sedlo. There is also a very beautiful view of the castle from the bridge.

Crossroads below the center

To the north below the center is an important crossroads of both roads and hiking and biking trails. However, only five kilometers away is another great attraction – Svatošské rocks.

View from the Black Tower

There is free entry to the Black Tower. However, the outlook from it is relatively limited. Even so, it is worth a visit.

Under Loket Castle

Turn into the church street and climb directly under the mighty Loket castle. Most visitors to the city do not miss his visit – in addition to the classic exhibits, there is also a nice view from the tower and a drastic torture chamber.

Square in Loket

The square in Loket is really beautiful. The only thing that spoils it here are a lot of parked cars – as if they couldn't park outside the biggest center.

TG Masaryk Square in Loket

In the square you will find not only a large plague column, but also a fountain. Virtually the whole city is nicely renovated.

Fortunately, the road is not very busy and you will also find a gazebo. In addition, a footpath leads under you under the rocks, to which you can join the rocks and go down to the river Ohře.
