  STS078-732-049 Isthmus of Corinth, Greece June 1996
The historical Isthmus of Corinth can be seen in this southwest-looking view. The Isthmus of Corinth is 20 miles (32 km) long and 4 to 8 miles (6 to 13 km) wide, and connects central Greece (bottom left and bottom center of the image) with the Peloponnesus (upper right of the image). The isthmus lies between the Saronic Gulf (upper left) and the Gulf of Corinth (center and right center). The Corinth Canal (not discernible on the image), 4 miles (6 km) long, crosses the isthmus and connects the Adriatic and Aegean Seas. The Gulf of Corinth, an inlet to the Ionian Sea, is 80 miles (130 km) long and from 3 to 20 (5 to 32 km) wide. The gulf separates the Greek mainland from the Peloponnesus. The city of Corinth is located at the southeastern end of the Gulf of Corinth. Corinth is a port and major transportation center trading in olives, tobacco, raisins, and wine. The city was destroyed by an earthquake in 1928 and rebuilt.
