Abstract

The Zoning Plan of Hradec Kralove creates conditions for developing the chartered city so as to strengthen its natural status as the administrative centre of Hradec Králové and the Czech Republic and one of the core areas of the Hradec Králové Pardubice agglomeration. Conversion of the provincial, heavily fortified city into its current form, a stronger regional city, ran from the second half of the 19th century. Several key milestones in the development of the city were due to the conscious approach of the city leaders. The first important impulse of the urban development was 20 June 1858 when they cancelled fortress headquarters, including the ban on the construction of the fortress perimeter. This paper deals precisely with urban activities in the transformation of a military fortress into the county town, as well as with how architectural Hradec Kralove focus on the functional use influenced contemporary urban planning of the city.
