The Corinth Canal cuts through the Isthmus of Corinth and physically separates the Peloponnesian Peninsula from the rest of mainland Greek. It is a single channel 8 metres (26 ft) deep and 6.4 kilometres (4.0 mi) long, but only about 21 metres (70 ft) wide at sea level, making it unnavigable by most modern transport vessels. Completed in 1893.
