Loket coat of arms

Loket (Czech pronunciation: [ˈlokɛt]; German: Elbogen) is a town of some 3 000 inhabitants in the Sokolov District in the Karlovy Vary region of the Czech Republic.
Loket means "elbow" in English. The town is named this due to the town centre being surrounded on three sides by the Ohře River, and the shape the river takes is similar to that of an elbow. The town centre itself features Loket Castle, a 12th century gothic castle. The town centre is a national monument and as such is preserved from modern developments.
