    Greece: The Corinthos Channel (Corinth Canal) connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea. It cuts through the narrow Isthmus of Corinth. It is 6.4km (4 mi) in length & only 21.4m (70 ft) wide at its base, making it impassable for most modern ships. Constructed from 1881 to 1893, it now has little economic importance & is used mainly for tourist traffic

    The Corinth Canal in Greece is another place i'd like to visit. A multi-millenial dream to unify the east with west, the canal was finally completed in 1893 but it was already out of date - the ships the backers hoped to attract were too big to fit between those startling walls. A magnificent fiasco

Corinth canal, Greece >> Whoa, this is amazing!

The Isthmus of Corinth is the narrow land bridge which connects the Peloponnese peninsula with the mainland of Greece, near the city of Corinth. The word “isthmus” comes from the Ancient Greek word for “neck” and refers to the narrowness of the land. Since 1893 the Corinth Canal has run through the 6.3 km wide isthmus, effectively making the Peloponnese an island.  (via illusionwanderer)

The castle of Bourtzi is located in the middle of the harbour of Nafplio. The Venetians completed its fortification in 1473 to protect the city from pirates and invaders from the sea. The Greeks regained it from the Turks on June 18, 1822, from where they assisted in the siege of Nafplio. Until 1865 it served as a fortress. Greece
