The Town of Loket
The town of Loket is situated in west Bohemia near Karlovy Vary at a distinct rocky promontory with a beautiful medieval castle, surrounded by the Ohře River on three sides. The centre is an urban reservation. You will find a beautiful square there with the Baroque Holy Trinity Column and a series of historical burgher houses. Legend has it that this is the place where ageing Johann Wolfgang Goethe asked young Ulrika von Lewetzov to marry him on the terrace of the Bílý kůň hotel.
