Tsar-pushka is a tremendous cannon, the most biggest cannon in the world. No wonder, that's it's name is translated as a King of Cannons. First it was made for defence of Kremlin and therefore was placed on Krasnaya Ploshad (Red Square). Nowadays Tsar-pushka is located in between Ivan the Great Belltower and the Church of the Twelve Apostles on the Ivanovskaya square, near Kremlin Armory facing the Kremlin Senate. Tsar-pushka was cast by master of bronze casting Andrey Chokhov in 1586 by order of Tsar Fedor Ivanovich. Its weight is nearly 40 tonns and lenght is almost 6 meters. Bronze barrel of Tsar-pushka has diameter of 120 cm and is decorated with casted ornaments, inscriptions, and has a figure of Tsar Fedor Ivanovich mounted on a horse with a crown and a scepter in his hand. Nowadays the Cannon is placed on the ornamental cast iron gun carriage. There are decorative projectiles near cannon, each of them weight 1 tonn. They were cast in 1834 in Saint-Petersburg. Tsar-pushka is a truly masterpiece and monument of Russian gunsmithing.
