The village of Loukov was originally a Slavic settlement known as Lúka. It is located 6 km north of Mnichovo Hradiště on the right bank of the Jizera River in the same hollow.

The first written mention of the village is from 1352. However, the Slavic settlement of Lúka had already appeared near the Jizera River in 1200. The original name was inspired by the surrounding vast meadow landscape. Later the settlement was renamed as Loukov.

The Gothic-Renaissance church is an interesting feature of the village. It was built on the site of the original Church dating back to the 14th century. In 1819, the building was damaged by fire and then restored in 1836. The neo-Romanesque tower dates back to those times. A pewter baptismal font created in 1582 is located in the interior. The neo-Gothic tomb of the Rohan princes is situated next to the Church. The Rohan family was the owner of Sychrov manor built in 1814.

Loukov also contains monuments of folk timbered architecture from the period of the 17th to 18th centuries. One of the most interesting buildings is No. 27 — the farmhouse with a granary, belonging to the Šonský family. There are also two interesting statues of saints, i.e. the statue of St. Jan of Nepomuk (known as Jáníček) erected in 1779 and the statue of St. Joseph from 1798.

The surrounding countryside is ideal for hiking and cycling.
