Tsar Bell and Tsar Cannon, Moscow

(4/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
While visiting the Moscow Kremlin, take the opportunity to admire Tsar Bell and Tsar Cannon, two towering examples of bronze casting taken to the extreme. The cannon dates back to the 16th century and the bell is around 150 years younger. To this day, they are the largest of their kind in the world. Technically a bombard, the highly ornate cannon weighs close to 40 tons, and even though legend claims it was never fired, there do seem to be some traces of use inside the barrel. The 200 ton bell, however, was definitely never used, because it cracked during the casting: you can still see the 11.5 ton broken-off piece next to it. Both attractions are so massive that you can easily take clear photos of them even when they're surrounded by a crowd of onlookers.

Stand near these giants and captures the spirit of impressive size and appearance beauty! Tsar-Cannon installed and Tsar Bell on the territory of the Moscow Kremlin in the Cathedral square. in open space. It is better to schedule a visit in good weather with a guide or a preview story. Tickets are sold at the box office on the territory of the Alexander garden. at bargain prices * 300 rub. If without benefits for 500 USD. -significantly immediately after each tour, and want to see it all! It's the same story and pride of our country! But before these tours were complimentary, but visit them was very difficult.
