Well, there is only one side left of the bridge… other than that there ist not much to say, no ships in sight so after getting a glimpse of the canal we moved on…

First time seeing a bridge that submerges
May 2019
We were with a large group visiting Greece. We took a boat through the Corinth Canal. The first thing we did was have a bridge submerge as we entered the canal. The boat went over the area where the bridge had been. We are used to seeing draw bridges but this was a first seeing a bridge submerge.

Where else can you see one of these?

A bridge that ships can pass over. Yes, 'over'. And it's not far off the main road, with a cafe terrace from where you can wait and watch the bridge rise and fall.

You have to see it to believe it. An incredible piece of engineering. Not well signposted so recommend using a map.

Really interesting way of fishing
Jun 2019 • Solo
The story is that sometimes the bridge goes down and then comes up with fish! The people who oversee the bridge run out and get the fish

Another amazing piece of engineering!

We were delighted to be held up whilst this submersible bridge on the Corinth Canal was in operation. It is an amazing structure.

Best view of the canal
Oct 2018
Very slippery... but worth the stop and a short walk on the bridge, to have a good look at the 'cut', from water level !

Unusual sight and a different view of the canal
May 2018 • Couples
We were lucky enough to see one of the bridges submerge to allow a ship access to the canal. This is a sight not to be missed if you are in the area. The ancient diolkos (the overland route for ships in ancient times) is nearby, and free to view.

Just an experience!!!
Apr 2018 • Solo
Although the view of the whole canal is nice and picturesque you can to say that is a place that you have to see !!!sometimes when you have to hurry it is annoying because you may wait more than 30 minutes if a boat has to pass!!! I remember at the past when the bridge was lifted it was full o little fishes that were unlucky to pass the time it was going up!!!at isthmia bridge is better because there is restaurant at the edge of the canal!!ok nice experience, nothing else

Unique - the only two such bridges in the world are here!
Oct 2017 • Couples
We stopped at another part of the Corinth Canal where a truly unique bridge exists. These two 'sinking' bridges, originally called subducting bridges, exist near both ends of the canal. Rather than rise to allow a ship to pass, they ‘sink’ down to the canal floor, 8 meters below the surface. We happened to arrive just as the gate went down to stop traffic and were able to watch (and photo and video) the entire process.

It's just a short detour off the expressway to see this - don't miss it!
