Corinth Canal is an unavoidable destination in Greece and a place where two Gulfs meet. The canal was a failed attempt of ancient builders who wanted to dig it through the Isthmus of Corinth and make a way from Gulf of Corinth to Saronic Gulf in the Aegean sea. Since the digging during the 1st century failed, Greeks had to wait until 1881 to try again. This endeavor was also futile, but it was finally completed in 1893.

Due to its geological circumstances, it never achieved desired economic importance. This 6.4 kilometers long and only 21.4 meters wide canal is just a touristic attraction and mostly impassable for modern ships. Nevertheless, it’s a great place for taking photos and a reminder of ancient entrepreneurs.
