Fakten

  • Similar to Philadelphia's Philadelphia City Hall, an unwritten law forbade all builders in the city to construct any building taller than this tower; the building was surpassed in height during the Soviet times as old traditions and rituals, including religion, faded.
  • To this day the tower remains the tallest structure within the Kremlin, surpassing all other buildings within the wall as well as the guard towers on The Kremlin Wall.
  • A popular misconception is that the tower is named after Ivan the Terrible, here called "the Great" for one reason or another; in fact, the two czars were separate rulers, with Ivan the Great being Ivan the First and Ivan the Terrible being Ivan the Fourth.
  • A legend says that the ghost of Ivan the Terrible still walks on the uppermost level of the bell tower and can be heard during a quiet night.
