Treaty of Carlowitz

Following a two-month congress between the Ottoman Empire on one side and the Holy League, a coallition of various European powers including Austria-Hungary, Poland, Venice and Russia, a treaty was signed in Sremski Karlovci (Karlowitz in German) on January 26, 1699. With it, the Ottoman Empire surrendered control of most of Hungary, Transylvania and Slavonia to Austria, Podolia[?] passed to Poland and the Morea[?] (the Peloponnesus peninsula) and most of Dalmatia to Venice. The Venetian gains were lost in 1718 by the Treaty of Passarowitz. The Treaty of Carlowitz, concluding the Austro-Ottoman war (1683-1697) in which the Ottoman side was defeated, marks the end of the Ottoman expansion westward into Europe and makes Austria the dominant power in the south-eastern Europe.
