It is a place where at about 6 hectares original Přemyslite settlement was located, which disappeared without a trace. Around 1057 Prince Spytihnev II. founded the Chapter of St. Stephen there. Later, at the site of the castle was built fishing Church of St. George - demolished in 1876. Neighboring town fortification was annexed to the city and newly colonized between 1253 and 1262 as the New Town.
After the establishment of a bishopric in the eastern part of the hill gave in 1655, Bishop Maximilian Rudolf Schleinitz basis for the construction of an ecclesiastical complex, extending on approximately 3 hectares. The area was bordered by about 750 meters long fortification wall with three gates. The main northern gate (not preserved) from Dom street comes of 1662 and bears the coat of arms of first bishop Schleinitz. Western gate in the Baroque style is smaller and the east one is in its present form of 1808. There is the Cathedral of St. Stephen, the bishop's residence, the chapter consistory (originally seminar of 1735 by O.Broggio), the new provostry of 1886 and houses in the south of the years 1674 and 1717.
