You may have seen the photo taken on this wonderful occasion through social media. It’s really amazing.
The canal is 6.4 kilometres (4 miles) in length with a width of only 21.4 metres (70 feet) at sea level and 21.3 metres (70 feet) at the bottom. It is therefore impassable for most modern ships.
It is mainly a tourist attraction and is of little economic importance today. Tourists are able to reach out and touch the sides of the canal, which is 24 meters wide at its narrowest point.
At 22.52 meters and 195.82 meters long, MS Bremer by Olsen Cruise Line became the longest vessel to pass through the Corinthian Canal. In the video below you can see a cruise ship sailing through this canal.
The ship sails to destinations such as Rhodes, Cephalonia and ports in Spain and Italy. It also carries nearly 929 passengers for a 25-day journey.
One of the sights it crosses is the Corinth Canal, the waterway that separates mainland Greece from the Peloponnese and connects the Gulf of Corinth to the Aegean.
