Two great monuments to the past are the Tsar Cannon, the largest cannon in the world, located right outside Cathedral Square, and the 200-ton Tsar Bell, which was silenced by fire and now sits at the foot of the Ivan the Great Bell Tower.

Excellent for photo taking, we become small when standing next to the bell. Located just inside Red Square, very easy to find

When the atmospheric setting and the rose tinted spectacles are put away, what actually do we have here? A cannon that was never fired and to anyone even remotely practical - even in the sixteenth century- obvious that it could never be fired. Also a...More

The bell was so large that it could not be utilized. It was not something I expected to see in The Kremlin,

The large decorative bronze cannon and the broken bell are some of the sites to see when you visit the interior of the Kremlin complex. They are located just outside of the Cathedral square. Very popular with the hordes of tourists streaming past.

Both these items found inside the Kremlin walls are larger than I expected. But why create something so big it can't be used? I guess it's just a case of mine is bigger than yours

With the grounds of the Kremlin there is much to see, the Tsar Bell and Cannon are difficult to miss and worth a look.

The broken piece gives you an idea of the thickness of the metal. It is amazingly thick. A popular spot for pictures while in the Kremlin territory. The weight of the bell is estimated at 200 tons. Cast in 1730 it is an awesome sight
