Conclusion of Pljussa truce

to map

10. August 1583

Pursuant to the end of military activities in Estonia the Swedes continued the fights in Ingermanland in 1582 and conquered it. In 1583 Pljussa truce was concluded with Russia by which also Ingermanland fell to the hands of the Swedes besides Estonia.

Ingermanland could not be kept in the hands too long: in 1595 the Swedes had to give it up again. Pljussa truce is though considered the end of the Livonian war, as thereafter the Russians could not invade to the territory of Estonia and Latvia for a long term and the peace was dominant between Sweden and Poland in the first years.

The relations of the Swedes and Polish with the Danish having reigned Saaremaa were also generally peaceful.
