It is separated from Malá Strana by a narrow artificial channel to the west called the Devil's Stream (Čertovka), a waterway dug to power water mills (no longer existent). It is supposedly named after a sharp-tongued woman who lived in a local home called the Seven Devils.

The area was named in the 17th century as the campus ("field") by Spanish soldiers who tented here during the Battle of White Mountain.
