Summary/Abstract: The study denies that the place where the negotiations between King Přemysl Otakar I and Bishop of Prague Ondřej took place in 1221, referred to in the sources as mons Scach or mons Scac, is the Schatzberg near Retz on the border of Moravia and Austria. The solution is Sadská, where several provincial assemblies were held in the 12th century. Such a place had sufficient capacity to host representative meetings of legates of the Pope, the Bohemian king and nobility, bishops, provosts and abbots from Central Europe. This place was also acceptable for Bishop Ondřej – the chapter functioning here was established at the beginning of the 12th century and remained favourable to Ondřej, unlike Stará Boleslav, Mělník and Litoměřice which were exempted from bishops control. Finally, the not-high hill (geomorphologically butte) Sadská (215 m above sea level) is one of the dominant features of the Polabí.
