Two great monuments to the past are the Tsar Cannon, the largest cannon in the world, located right outside Cathedral Square, and the 200-ton Tsar Bell, which was silenced by fire and now sits at the foot of the Ivan the Great Bell Tower.

In the bigger scheme of things you probably wouldn't go out of your way too far to visit these relics but since they're in the Kremlin, and you'll be right there anyway if you visit Moscow as a tourist, you might as well make it...More

Our guide told us that the cannon was place outside of Red Square to scare invading people away. It was nonfunctional but did the trick. The bell was broken during making. Both take a minute to walk by and see.

The czar cannon and czar bell are from different centuries but neither have been used. They make for good photos and are very popular!

This is inside the Kreml. You can take pretty cool pictures with it. It is a huge bell. Hard to believe it is just sitting there.

The canon is huge and the bell is the largest in the world. The bell was never used and it broke soon after it was made. When inside Kremlin these are easily visible .

The Kremlin holds the worlds largest bell, unfortunately after being cast a fire occurred and the bell lay in place for some time, when finally being excavated it had many cracks and a large piece was broken off and the bell was never rung.
