"the cremlin (6): Ivan the Great bell tower" Kremlin - Ivan the Great Bell Tower Tip by Sioma

  ivan the great bell tower
by Sioma

Kolokolnja Ivana belnkogo...this is the higher building of the Kremlin, and for many years also the higher of the whole Moscow (it wasn't allowed to build higer tower)
Near the bell tower there's the bell (tzar kolokol, zar bell ) seems it's the bigger in the world (more than 200 tons of weight ! ); anyway, it was never put on the tower, because damaged during the melting process.
