The Tsar Cannon (Russian: Царь-пушка, Tsar'-puška) is a large, nearly 20 foot-long cannon on display on the grounds of the Moscow Kremlin. It was cast in 1586 in Moscow, by the Russian master bronze caster Andrey Chokhov. Mostly of symbolic impact, it was never fired in war. Per the Guinness Book of Records it is the largest bombard by caliber in the world. It is a major tourist attraction in the ensemble of the Moscow Kremlin.
