Loket Castle

Loket Castle
22. 11. 2013

Get to know a place where the Czech king and Roman emperor Charles IV came to rest and hunt game.

The royal castle allegedly got its name from the place where the River Ohře creates a charming bend in the shape of a human elbow (loket in Czech). Charles IV allegedly loved the place despite the fact that his father John of Bohemia kept him here by force for several months during his childhood. Visit the torture chambers with an audio backdrop which is not for the faint-hearted. You will also see an exhibition of porcelain with unique spa buttons and a romantic fresco dating back to the 15th century, which displays a view from the castle over gardens with fruit trees, flowers and birds in flight.
