Heaviest (largest) bell
Tsar Kolokol
The Tsar Kolokol, cast by Russian brothers I. F. and M. I. Motorin on 25 November 1735 in Moscow, weighs 202 tonnes and measures 6.6 m (22 ft) in diameter, 6.14 m (20 ft) high and 60 cm (24 in) at its thickest point. The bell was cracked in a fire in 1737 and a fragment, weighing about 11.5 tonnes, was broken off. The bell has stood, unrung, on a platform in the Kremlin in Moscow since 1836 with the broken section alongside.
