Original Tsar Cannon was cast in bronze in the XV century by the Russian master Andrei Chokhov.
Gun carriages have been created much later in the XVIII century in St. Petersburg, they were made by the sketch of the architect A Bryullov
Modern Tsar Cannon is a pretty pathetic monument, which is connected to a lot of political gossip and simple folk speculation.
In Donetsk is installed the Tsar Cannon which is a replica of the Moscow monument, but its housing barrel was shortened by 6 cm. It is molded by the Izhevsk masters and is a gift and a pledge of friendship between Moscow and Donetsk. Tsar Gun was donated and installed in 2001. Given the considerable weight of the gift, no less - 65 tons, the pedestal for the monument was commissioned by native craftsmen of the most durable granite. The Tsar Cannon is installed in the main square in Donetsk, in front of city hall. During transportation from Moscow the gun was disassembled into 3 trucks.
The second copy of the gun is in the city of Yoshkar-Ola at the Obolensky Square.
