Коринфский канал, соединяющий залив Сароникос Эгейского моря и Коринфский залив Ионического моря, находится на юге материковой части Греции.

В настоящее время канал отчасти утратил экономическое значение. Из-за узости водного пути в нём организовано реверсивное движение. Канал не могут проходить крупные океанские суда, ширина которых приближается к 20 метрам. Крупнотоннажные суда проходят канал на буксире, так как возникает опасность размыва стен. В год через канал проходят 11 000 судов.

Греция.Коринфский канал и его история

Удивительный канал

15 июля 2016 г.


Коринфский канал — канал в Греции, соединяющий Саронический залив Эгейского и Коринфский залив Ионического морей. Он прорыт через Коринфский перешеек, отделяющий полуостров Пелопоннес от материка.

Представьте себе эту головокружительную картину – узкий морской коридор, над которым возвышаются отвесные стены из известняка, высотой в несколько десятков метров. Это – Коринфский канал, рукотворная водная магистраль, соединяющая два моря – Эгейское и Ионическое. Мысль о постройке подобного “коридора”, возникла еще у древних греков, но реализовать эту идею люди смогли только в конце 19-го века. Сегодня этот удивительный канал с богатой историей привлекает множество туристов, которые съезжаются в эту часть Греции, чтобы полюбоваться невиданными красотами необычного канала, похожего на глубоководный каньон, по которому осторожно двигаются гигантские круизные суда.

Протяженность канала составляет 6343 м, ширина колеблется от 21 метра у дна до 25 метров у поверхности воды, высота до уреза воды 90 м, глубина — 8 м.

Через канал перекинуты один железнодорожный и три автомобильных моста.

С древних времён делались попытки построить канал в этом месте. Первое упоминание относится к VII веку до н. э., когда коринфский тиран Периандр, причисляемый к семи мудрецам древней Греции, попытался прорыть водный путь, но остановил работы. Причиной прекращения работ являлись опасения Периандра, что из-за несоответствия уровней Эгейского и Ионического морей возможно затопление земель. По другой версии, он боялся возбудить гнев богов, потому что оракул жрицы Пифии в Дельфах провозгласил: «Не снабжай перешейка башней, и не прорывай его (не пересекай его каналом)».

По предположениям, это прорицание исходило от жрецов коринфских храмов, боявшихся, что вследствие открытия канала для быстрого прохода судов они лишатся щедрых приношений и подарков, потому что у купцов не было бы больше поводов оставаться в Коринфе. Вместо канала тиран создал более простой и менее дорогостоящий каменный скат, получивший название «Диолк». Остатки Диолка в настоящее время существуют рядом с каналом.

О возможности прокладки канала думал Деметрий Полиоркет в 307 году до н. э. Но и он оставил эту мысль, когда египетские инженеры, которых он нанял чтобы осуществить задуманное, уверили его, что существует одна проблема. По их словам, уровень воды в Коринфском заливе и в Сароническом заливе неодинаков, инженеры предупреждали, что, если прорыть полосу суши, воды Коринфского залива хлынут в Саронический залив, затопят всю область и смоют соседние острова.

Когда Коринф перешёл под власть римлян, Юлий Цезарь и позже Калигула тоже разрабатывали такие планы. В 67 году нашей эры император Нерон предпринял третью попытку прорыть канал, привлекая к работе 6 000 рабов и каторжников. Эта попытка провалилась, когда Нерону пришлось вернуться в Рим, где вспыхнуло восстание против него. Вскоре после смерти Нерона его преемник Гальба остановил дорогостоящий проект. В последующие годы Ирод Аттик и позже византийцы старались пересечь перешеек, но и их усилия не увенчались успехом. То же самое можно сказать о венецианцах, которые начали работы, но вскоре опять сдались.

После Греческой революции в 1821 году первый президент Греции Иоаннис Каподистрия также строил планы строительства Коринфского канала, видя его значение для развития Греции. Он поручил разработку проекта французскому инженеру, но по экономическим причинам от этих планов пришлось отказаться.

После открытия Суэцкого канала греческое правительство в ноябре 1869 года издало закон о «пересечении каналом Коринфского перешейка». Проектирование канала было поручено венгерским архитекторам Иштвану Тюрру и Белу Герстеру, подготовившими ранее проект Панамского канала. 5 мая 1882 года, после длительных переговоров, начались работы по постройке канала. Строительство канала было начато французской компанией, которая прекратила работу из-за финансовых трудностей, так и не закончив работы. Греческая компания во главе с греческим банкиром и филантропом Андреасом Сингру подхватила проект и закончила объект в рекордные сроки. Эксплуатация канала началась в 1893 году. Канал позволял судам, огибавшим Пелопоннес, сократить путь более, чем на 400 километров.

Строительство Коринфского канала велось в течение более, чем десяти лет (1881—1893) силами двух с половиной тысяч рабочих, которые использовали самые лучшие на то время машины. Было вынуто приблизительно 930 000 кубических метров земли и камня. 7 августа 1893 года было устроено торжество по случаю открытия канала.

Самое незабываемое действие проходит во время движения по каналу гигантских круизных судов. Крупнотоннажные корабли могут пройти по нему лишь на буксире, крайне аккуратно.
