  • For a long time I lived close to this "Tsar-Cannon" and most of my favorite entertainment was zalazit right into the muzzle of this unit! Now, of course, it already made due to vandals, and inside is no longer fruit, but without it there is always a lot of children. In addition, nearby is the very beautiful Fountain, where summer is always shining Rainbow, and huge wrought-iron roses and behind the famous Park forged figures.

  • Tsar-Cannon, a copy of the original Moscow appeared in Donetsk in 2001 year. It was installed in the square in front of City Council, its barrel aimed toward the shopping center "White Swan". And here's a park near City Administration forged sculptures. The idea is to set the gun belonged to Constantinou Vorobjovs, he reminded people of today the symbol of Donbass, Palm Mertsalova, was the organizer of the Festival "Zolotoy skif" and other activities about the region learned many, not only as the industrial center of the country, but also to its rich cultural heritage. Preparing to implement ideas started in year 2000, according to the official version, the Tsar Cannon was a gift of the Government of Moscow Donetsk, was a response to the gift Moscow, copies of the legendary Palm Mertsalova. The Tsar Cannon, mounted on square of Donetsk, manufactured at a factory in Izhevsk, whose Director was Valery Moiseyev. When is broadly similar to the original, located in Moscow, the copy has some serious differences, for example, its trunk is made of cast iron rather than bronze. Besides, it is shorter at 6 cm, this was done by order of the Directorate of the museum-reserve "the Moscow Kremlin". The weight of the barrel is 44 tons and weighs about 20 tons of cradle. Delivered ready tool in Donetsk with the two tractors.
