Chapter Summary

Muscovite Russia conducted its Levantine trade, at first via Tana and Soudak and subsequently, in the 15th century, through Kaffa. This chapter presents a few details concerning the trade balance between the countries of Eastern Europe and the towns on the Black Sea during the Middle Ages. In the 16th century, Polish merchants were active in the Ottoman countries, following the routes which led via the Rumanian principalities to Constantinople and Bursa. In conclusion, it is clear that the exchange of goods between Poland and the Turkish and Persian Levant increased considerably in the course of the 16th century. The pax turcica in South-Eastern Europe and Anatolia probably made an important contribution to the establishment of closer ties between this area and the countries situated further to the North.
