The Impact of Passarowitz

300 Years of Continuity in Europe

In 1718 the Ottoman Empire and the Habsburg Empire conclude a peace and trade treaty in Passarowitz, today’s Požarevac in the north east of Serbia. Both treaties bring to an end hostilities between the two powers, but more besides. They usher in a new era of relations and place future cooperation between Central Europe and the Balkan countries on the basis of international law.
The exhibition in the Styrian Armoury is devoted to the consequences of the treaties in the areas of traffic, economy, political relations, and cultural and scientific exchange to the present day.
