Moscow (2)

The Tsar's cannon. A 1 meter bore gun that has never been fired and the Tsar's bell, weighing in at 200 tonnes. It has never rung.

Imperial Russia - Items from the Armory.

A clock, coach and crown





And a few eggs.

On the way -- down the Moscow canal.

The first of 14 locks. This one drops 8 meters.

Seems like a quiet spot for fishing.

Dachas - most are new and not at all like the drab housing of Moscow.

This bell tower is all that remains of a church that was flooded when the river was damed.

It will be sunset soon - It's almost 10 p.m.
