Fairy Tale, part 3. Loket/Karlovy Vary

I'm sorry it took me a bit long to update. I have news I'd love to share with you but I'll wait a little more to make a proper post.
We've made a trip to Loket and on our return decided to spent some extra time in Karlovy Vary. It's very nice and easy to travel there on the bus which goes every morning at 9 20-something from Florenz and goes directly to Loket. On the way back it's a great idea not to spent all the day in amazing Loket (although I'm sure you'd wanted to) and have a trip to the near by bigger citys: Karlovy Vary or Sokolov.
Loket is the most stunning place we've visited in Czech republic so far.
Small town and small castle which used to have so many purposes including even being a prison. As I am already talking about prisons I've to write about tortures. I've seen (without looking for it especially) at least 6 museums of tortures during the trip. In Loket it's the most fun. I mean it's fun because there are wax statures displaying some of ways people were treated years ago and to it in real prison rooms. It doesn't look scary even for a kid and as far as I think Loket keepers not intended to scary someone. But the screams-music is very nice. Fab place with tiny center, very nice buildings, very friendly and calm. As soon as we left Loket we started wishing to be there again one day.
We never planned to visit Karlovy Vary but enjoyed the spontaneous three hours walk in the center.
Lazy and old place. It's meant to be for elderly people and I loved this vibe. As it was built for tourism (as far as Karl IV could get tourism) the walk was charming as everything is built not far from the other. I mean, you can have a nice walk and see the most of sight seeing in three or four hours instead trying to decide what would be more dear to you. oh, and visit the Jan Becher museum. Becherovka is very nice thing to dring when you're freezing.

My outfit is very simple but I was very grateful I've chosen over to any other
I look like a super tourist. I knew I would spent all the day in buses, castles, museums and such not knowing what is going to be next. I needed something comfy and universal. So I though of playing androgyny tourist creating this outfit. Did I sucсeed?
Outfit shots in Loket castle


and in a small cafe saved my lovely Max's life from freezing

and the last shot of my outfit was made in Vary.

And finally photos you've been really waiting for:
Loket







This is a Dragon. Buuu! The stories from Loket says this dragon used to love here and is famous for his soft temper helping locals to set fine and such.



Karlovy Vary




 I love how I managed to take Max's photo so very well done.

 It's our family travel tradition to snap drinking from street's water fountains. He even drunk a little but after the photo was taken  - the termal water is very hot.


Are you still here and looking? Ok, you won a virtual prize.

I was wearing as super tourist:
Topshop coat (I told ya, all January in this coat!)
Tommy Hilfiger jeans and boots
Topman rucksack (borrowed from Max)
Max's cap (extra comfy and warm)
Umbrella bought in Prague (trust me, one day under the rain in Strekov and we finally bought it)
DKNY sweater (very old, sorry for showing it again)
Diesel glasses
LEGO watches (gifted from Max for the Winter holidays)

 

Have a nice day,
Lyosha
