Moscow is a city that cannot be described with simple words - it requires epithets and proverbs. It has been called white-walled and gold-domed, ancient and youthful, hospitable and business-like, solemn and merry and bustling all at once. A sun, feeding life, which spins around it . In other words, a true capital.

The bronze Tsar Cannon with a diametre of 120 centimetres (4 feet) barrel never fired. The Cannon was cast by craftsman Andrey Chokhov in 1586. The cannon never took part in any actual battle, although it was intended to shoot both stone cannon balls and buckshot. The cast iron cannon balls that were placed near the Tsar Cannon in mid-19th century do not actually fit the barrel.
