    I felt excited to be inside the Keraton but after I got in, it turned me off. This could be one of the top notch sites in Solo if it has been cleaned and well maintained. Don't want to go back. Sorry :"(

    If this palace is totally renovated, it would be greater and more luxurious than Kraton Yogyakarta. NOTE: the palace is only accessible by driving the car or riding the motorbike. The parking lot available only for cars. It's not recommended to access it by walking since there's no pedestrian walks from the entrance gate (Gladak) entering the Palace. High risk getting accident against cars/box truck entering Pasar Klewer.

    Biiiiggg palace and historical landmark in surakarta. Should your pictures been taken by those SLR freelancers, it might be better to tell them not to print if you really don't intend to buy them.

    It's good enough to enjoy the traditional atmosphere. Here, you can see the holly buffalo own by its palace. You can also enjoy the culinary, especially tengkleng or selat solo (the special food of palace family). Try this!

    The Palace is really interesting but in desperate need of renovation. It's also disappointing to see how the artifacts are displayed in the museum.
