It may sound surprising to some people, but bells and cannons are like siblings. Both are made of the same type of metal, and most of the time, the same metal itself. Historical accounts reveal that bells were melted and made into cannons during wars, and cannons were melted and made into bells in times of peace. So, it would not be unusual to find the best specimens of each featured in one place in Moscow, Russia.

Tsar Bell

Measuring at 6 meters in height and 6.6 meters across, and weighing in at approximately 202 tons, the Tsar Bell is considered to be the largest bell in the world. The bell, decorated on the surface with images of baroque angels and saints and almost life-size images of Tsar Alexey and Empress Anna, was never used. There were three attempts at constructing the bell, and each attempt was met by unfortunate events.

The intricately designed Tsar Bell was cast in the 1730s.
