Iconic Russian monuments impressive because of their size and history! Quite popular with tourists, so probably you'll have to wait to take pics...

Impessive in every way are these two items on display within the Kremlin.
The Tsar Bell, built between 1733 and 1735 is claimed as the largest bell in the world. At around 6 mtrs high , with a diameter 6'6 mtrs, and weighing 202kg, I don't doubt that it is. The bell was broken during casting and has never been rung.
Similarly, the Tsar Cannon built in 1586 has never been discharged in conflict as it was never meant to be functional. It is also claimed to be the Worlds' biggest cannon, and weighing in at 39 tonnes, it probably is.
Incredible workmanship from as far back as 500+ years ago. Manual skills to be appreciated.

The bell was commissioned by Empress Anna, Niece of Peter the Great. However, it was too heavy to be lifted up in the olden days. This is the largest non working bell in the world as I was told. It also has a broken piece next to it.

It's marginally interesting as part of a tour of the Kremlin. It does exactly what it says on the tin!

On the Kremlin tour you get to see this magnificent huge broken bell. It was Empress Anna Ioanovna that wanted the bell made, but it had disaster written all over it from the inception. It weigh 202 tons and is the biggest bell in the world. Standing about 6 meters tall.
