Corinth Canal

Corinth canal sightseeing

Hold your breath for an awesome view over the manmade Corinth Canal. The canal of Corinth isthmus was delivered on 25 July 1893 though its history originates back to the late 7th century B.C. when the tyrant of Corinth Periander first set the vision of the canal. Through the timeline the first real attempt to dig the canal was initiated by Roman emperor Nero, to no success, and it was only until late 19th century, 25 centuries after the first conception, the coordinated work of visionary leaders, architects and engineers from all over Europe delivered this awesome project.
