Peloponnese is a peninsula located at the southern tip of the mainland and constitutes the southernmost part of mainland Greece. It is connected to the mainland by the Isthmus of Corinth, where the Corinth Canal was constructed in 1893.
The Peloponnese is also connected to the mainland by several bridges across the canal, including two submersible bridges at the north and the south end.
Near the northern tip of the peninsula, there is another bridge, the Rio–Antirrio bridge which was completed in 2004.
