… In castle basements, there was Charles IV held captive? Prince Wenceslas was only a small child at that time who later became a Roman Emperor and a Bohemian King Charles IV.
… At one of his stays in Loket, Charles IV set up a journey to the forest where he discovered hot springs? The place later became the city of Karlovy Vary.
… A gnome called Gottstein has its statue on the court? He is considered to be the master of Loket´s rocks. Touch his beard, leave spare coins and make a wish.
… Johann Wolfgang Goethe, famous German poet, celebrated his 74th birthday in Loket?
… During the Thirty Years´ War, a meteorite was thrown to the castle well so that it did not get stolen by the Swedish?
