Corinth Canal

The Corinth Canal​ is a 6.4 kilometers long canal built in 1893 for transportation purposes. It connects Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf, thus separating the Peloponnese peninsula from the Greek mainland. As the canal is very narrow, a little over 20 meters, a lot of modern transportation ships are not able to pass through it so it didn't reach the expected traffic. It is however a very nice sight and it attracts a lot of tourists.
