Loket, Czech Republic

Loket's a tiny town perched in a tight bend of the Ohře river, like Cesky Krumlov only with a fraction of the tourists.   Like any good Czech town, it's got a castle, a square, and a river, but it also has friendly canoers, summer festivals, nearby hiking trails, a really tall bridge, and bits of old city wall.  By public transportation, it's something of a chore to get to, and perhaps too quiet for some, but Loket is my idea of a perfect Czech travel destination.

  1. Melinda,
    Do you ever act as a travel guide for small groups or individuals? You would be good at it! I love the pictures and commentary.
