The name of the biggest bell in the world is "Tsar Bell". The Tsar Bell has never rung; it was broken during its casting. It weighs 201,924 kilograms (more than 200 tons) with a height of 6.14 meters. The bell was almost completed when a fire broke out in the Kremlin in 1737. Soon the wooden support structure caught fire, and the guards threw cold water on it. As a result it caused 11 cracks and a huge piece (11 tons) fell off.

If you visit the Kremlin there's almost no chance at all that you will miss this Bell and Cannon. Granted they are not in the middle of the courtyard, but honestly what American would find him/herself in the Kremlin without a guide, and what guide would show you the Kremlin without passing these relics. A bell that was never rung and a cannon that was never shot. Great metaphors for the whole operation

The Tsar Bell is 20.1 feet tall, 22 feet diameter bell. Empress Anna Ivanovna commissioned the Bell in 1733. It was commenced in 1735 and damaged in 1737 fire. It has never been in working order, suspended or rung. The crack damage of the Bell (the broken area) looked like an open door. No wonder that the Bell sometimes served as a “chapel”. (It could be a “shelter” when raining-sorry, should have paid respect to it).

The Tsar Cannon is technically not cannon, but a stylized mortar. The Cannon was cast in 1586 in Moscow, never used in a war (but fired at least once). The bronze Cannon is 17.5 feet long and 39-ton weight. Internal diameter of barrel is 35 in. Four one-ton spherical cast-iron shells in front of the Cannon were in place in 1834 for decoration purpose. It is the largest bombard by caliber in the world.
Along with this massive Cannon, there were 14 field cannons displayed. They had “really” been used during 17th-18th centuries.
