The bell was commissioned by Empress Anna, Niece of Peter the Great. However, it was too heavy to be lifted up in the olden days. This is the largest non working bell in the world as I was told. It also has a broken piece next to it.

It's marginally interesting as part of a tour of the Kremlin. It does exactly what it says on the tin!

On the Kremlin tour you get to see this magnificent huge broken bell. It was Empress Anna Ioanovna that wanted the bell made, but it had disaster written all over it from the inception. It weigh 202 tons and is the biggest bell in the world. Standing about 6 meters tall.

I visited the Tsar Bell and Tsar Cannon during a guided tour of the Moscow Kremlin. The cannon is a very popular "selfie" site. The cannon was cast using bronze at the Moscow Foundary in 1586. It's barrel is almost 6 metres long while its calibre is 890 millimetres. It is very decorative. This gigantic cannon weighs around 35 tonnes however, it was never fired in warfare. The Tsar Bell stands over 6 metres tall and is almost 7 metres in diameter. The bell was broken during casting and has never rung. Both the Tsar Cannon and the Tsar Bell are located between the Kremlin and the Bell Tower. Both are fascinating although probably not essential viewing.

We saw the Tsar Bell and Cannon as part of a two hour guided Kremlin tour. Impressive to hear/read the stories about the "never-fired-scare-off-your-enemies-cannon" and about the Bell that was to heavy to be lifted...
