In 1329, the Saint John Climacus Church was built here. In 1600, when Russian tsar Boris Godunov reigned, one more storey was added to the 2-storied Bell Tower of Saint John Climacus. Till the beginning of XIX century, when the Cathedral of Christ the Savior was built, Ivan the Great Bell Tower remained the highest building in Moscow. In 1812, during the war with Napoleon several additions were demolished, but were rebuilt afterwards. Totally, there are 34 bells: Uspenskiy - the biggest one, Reut or Revun, Medved - the oldest (1501), Tatarin, Lebed and others.
