You have to be amazed to see a bell and cannon of this size, also with the work that had to have gone into them to create them.

It is said that a piece of the bell broke while attempting its installation-- how was it hoisted in first place is a mystery-- the broken piece itself weighs... More

The bell is very cool to see due to its size and surprising thickness. A good place to take a picture along one's stroll around the Kremlin.

Clearly the canon and bell are major attractions within the Kremlin. Worth a visit. Both are massive which is consistent with the feeling within Moscow. Very impressive. Take a guide book to learn more about the history.

It was cold, although, I think I might have a pic... А 6.14-metre (20.1 ft) tall, 6.6-metre (22 ft) diameter bell on display on the grounds of the Moscow Kremlin. The bell was commissioned by Empress Anna Ivanovna, niece of Peter the Great. Made of bronze, the bell was broken during metal casting and has never been rung. The bell... More

This bell and cannon are gigantic. When you are in the Kremlin complex you will definitely walk by these. Join in with everyone else for the photo ops only something this massive can provide.
