The historical SultansTrail starts in Vienna where Süleyman Kanuni, sultan of the Ottoman empire, in 1529 during his conquest to the West was stopped. the path follows the Danube through Austria, parts of Hungary, Croatia and Serbia. Thereafter it passes the Bulgarian mountains before crossing the border with Turkey. The path ends at the grave tomb of the sultan in the heart of Istanbul. The route leads through many historical places, characteristic villages and and has an ever changing scenery of landscapes.
The initiative to realize the path and founder of the route is Sedat Cakir . Together with a group of volunteers he made it possible to reconstruct the route that Sultan Suleyman at the start of the 16th century followed with his tropes in there conquests to the West. In contradiction of the brutal past the path symbolises peace Sultans Trail encourages peace, and facilitated a meeting place for people from all religions and cultures. Because the path regulairly follows to rural areas and small remote villages it stimulates the local economy’s of the communities. the Sultans Trail uses exciting (European) GR-routes in some places , among which parts of the E8 and the Danube route.
