Built in 1858, modern Corinth replaced earthquake-ravaged ancient Corinth. It is set between the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas.

Corinth is a city and former municipality in Corinthia, Peloponnese, Greece, and is the capital of Corinthia. Corinth derives its name from Ancient Corinth, a city-state of antiquity. In 1858, the old city, now known as Archaia Korinthos was totally destroyed by an earthquake. New Corinth was then built on the coast of the Gulf of Corinth. The Corinth Canal, carrying ship traffic between the western Mediterranean Sea and the Aegean Sea, is about 4 kilometres east of the city. Natural features around the city include the narrow coastal plain of Vocha, the Corinthian Gulf, the Saronic Gulf, the Oneia Mountains, and the monolithic rock of Acrocorinth, where the medieval acropolis was built.
