Poland after the Treaty of Karlowitz in 1699
The Treaty (Peace) of Karlowitz (Karlovci) was signed on 26 January 1699 in Sremski Karlovcimarker (Serbian Cyrillic: Сремски Карловци, Croatian: Srijemski Karlovci, German: Karlowitz, Turkish: Karlofça, Hungarian: Karlóca), a town in modern-day Serbiamarker, concluding the Austro-Ottoman War of 16831697 in which the Ottoman side had finally been defeated at the Battle of Zentamarker.

Following a two-month congress between the Ottoman Empire on one side and the Holy League of 1684, a coalition of various European powers including the Habsburg Monarchy, the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, the Republic of Venicemarker and Peter I of Russia, a treaty was signed on 26 January 1699. The Ottomans ceded most of those territories to the Habsburg Monarchy, which were conquered from Hungary after 1526, while Podolia was returned to Poland. Most of Dalmatia passed to Venice, along with the Morea (the Peloponnesusmarker peninsula), which the Ottomans reconquered in 1715 and regained in the Treaty of Passarowitz of 1718.

The Treaty of Karlowitz marked the beginning of the Ottoman decline, and made the Habsburg Monarchy the dominant power in Central Europe.
