The Csar Cannon is made of bronze and weighs 39.3 tonnes. Czar cannon is 5.9 metres (19.5 ft) long. Russian craftsman Andrey Chokhov casted the cannon in Moscow in 1586. The barrel internal diameter is equal to 890mm (35.0 in), and external diameter - 1200 mm (47.2 in). It is considered to be the world largest cannon of this kind by caliber. The cannon was made as a symbol of military power and was never used at war. However the cannon bears traces of at least one firing. It was intended to fire just stones. Four iron balls were made for decorative purposes only in 19th century. Now it is a major touristic attraction of Moscow Kremlin. Behind the cannon you see the cathedral of Dormition to the right and the cathedral of Annunciation to the left. Thd cathedral of Dormition served to hold coronation procedures of Russian czars.
