Tsar Cannon stands close to the Tsar Bell on Ivan's Square. Its bronze 5,34 meter and 890 mm in caliber barrel weights about 40 tons. The cannon was cast in the year of 7094 of the Creation, or 1586 A.D., the third year of the reign of Tsar Feodor I (son of Ivan IV The Terrible) by cannon founder Andrei Chokhov. The gun carriage on wheels with balls was made in 1835 in St. Petersburg. The carriage weighs about 34,5 tons. The barrel is real bronze, but the carriage is cast iron, painted to look like bronze.
