  • Quite place to explore (weekdays always the best!). I think it would be better experience if I asked for palace's guide. You could take a picture together with the guard in front of palace.  more »
  • to a obligatory visit to the city of solo, Surakarta keratin located in the middle of town and easy to find try to come earlier to position the vehicle parking easier getting lunch getting crowded and congested at this location we can look at the history of the building older than Sultan's solo which is divided into several sections there are also photos of the King the King earlier, solo keshik goods up to the heritage atmosphere shaded with lush trees and here we could also ask for the services of a tour guide local to explain the extra costs certainly unfortunate condition of the Palace isn't so terawatt, I hope the local government even the Central Government should give more subsidies to preserve this cultural heritage.

  • If you want to enter this place charged an entrance fee which I forgot how (because my position paid for by) for the heck I think not so well groomed some of the door there is a little broken because it might eat the termites (maybe they intentionally did not immediately replace Therefore the door has become an icon of his time Yes dear) just a little place and remains can be seen. many places forbidden to enter. very unfortunate.

  • I love this place. Unfortunately, I was there during the renovation. So, some places are closed due to the renovation.
  • i don't know i also give 5 star for historical place in Indonesia like temple ,museum and another historical place, on there you can know how "Solo City" growth so far with more "Sultan" or "Governor"
  • Palace of Pakubuwono. Established in 1745 by Pakubuwono II. Surakarta Sunanate and Yogyakarta Sultanate are both the successors of Mataram Sultanate.
  • I'm talking about the museum only. For only IDR 10,000 (around USD 0.7), you can go inside the museum. The abdi dalems (Sunanate inside staffs) are good and welcoming tourists with superb hospitality. They are also very informative. What pissed me off was the photographers on the museum entrance. They were taking photos of me without permission and they were selling the prints after I exited the museum. Because it is a photo of me, I felt forced to buy the prints. It was IDR 50,000 (around USD 3.7). While it may cheap for foreigners, it was steep for Indonesians. Make sure you are covering your face when entering this museum.
