On July 25, 1893, the Corinth Canal in Greece opened. Envisioned for millennia, the waterway was cut through rock to sea level so no locks were needed. However, the narrow width means that it is now largely irrelevant to modern commercial shipping, so tourist boats make up most of the boat traffic.
