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.

As our tour guide told us, The very huge bell and canon were never used for their purpose. They are however very good examples OF royal opulance and grandiosity. A very good photo op at The Kremlin and a sight to behold.
