Tsar Bell, Moscow

The world's largest bell, it was cast three times.

The world's largest bell, it was cast three times. It has never been rung and is broken. The casting of this enormous bell was performed by a team of nearly 200 craftsmen. During the great fire of 1737, as burning timber from the structure above it fell into the pit where it was being cast, the craftsmen decided to pour cold water to prevent the bell from melting. Because of uneven cooling, the bell cracked and a huge chunk broke off. The broken Tsar Bell remained in its pit for almost 100 more years after that, until the architect Auguste Montferrand raised it in 1836 and placed it on its present granite pedestal.
