Yes. In 1735, the Tsar Bell was finally cast. However, it still remained in the moulding pit. In May, 1737, a terrible Troitskiy (Trinity) fire broke out in Moscow and spread to the Kremlin buildings. When the flames on the scarffolding around the bell were being extinguished, cold water fell on the bell itself. The difference in temperature caused it to crack, and a huge piece of 11,5 ton broke off.

Yes, it is called Öàðü–êîëîêîë (Car kolokol, The Tsar Bell). The bell is currently the largest bell in the world, weighing 216 tons, with a height of 6.14 m and diameter of 6.6 m.
