To bookmarks
Corinth in ancient Greece was a very famous and rich city thanks to a small strip of land separating the Ionian Sea from the Aegean Sea. It was very long to sail around the Peloponnese peninsula - about 400 km and it is dangerous, therefore, in this place ships were pulling to get from one sea to another. They wanted to unite the bays between the mainland and the Peloponnese in its narrowest place as early as the 6th century BC, and in the year 67 AD. even attempted to begin construction, which was destined to end only at the end of the 19th century. The Corinth Canal is the most impressive long-term construction site in the history of the planet, engineering marvels and just a marvelous place, striking by the contrast of azure water and sheer cliffs, is located near Athens. Studying the sights of Greece, I came across his photo and decided that I should see it with my own eyes.
