Corinth Canal is located in Aegean Sea (Eastern Mediterranean cruising region). It connects Gulf of Corinth with Saronic Gulf. The canal cuts through narrow Isthmus of Corinth and separates Peloponnese from Greece's mainland. This way it effectively makes the former peninsula an island. The canal's builders dug it through Isthmus at sea level as no locks are employed. It's length is 6.4 km (4 ml) and the width is just 21.4 m (70 feet) at its base, making it impassable for most contemporary ships. Today this canal has little economic importance.
An effort was made to build the canal in the 1st century AD. In 1881 its construction finally started, but was hampered by financial and geological problems that bankrupted the original builders. The Corinth Canal was completed in 1893. However, due to its narrowness, navigational problems and closures to repair landslides from its steep walls, the canal failed to attract the shipping traffic expected by its operators. It is currently used mainly for tourist traffic, including small-sized cruise ships.
