Europe's 2,500 year old mini Suez Canal that is barely wide enough for cruise ships


The Corinth Canal is one of the engineering wonders of the world and stands comparison with any of the other man-made waterways such as the Suez and Panama canals. It is one of the oldest such canals in the world and a very important navigational route in the Greek archipelago connecting the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf.

The Corinth Canal cuts through the isthmus of Corinth in Greece, connecting the Ionian Sea with the Aegean.

Corinth is also an archaeological site with many ancient landmarks, such as the Apollo temple and the Acrocorinth, the Acropolis of ancient Corinth.

Take a look at the pictures of the canal below.
