  • One of the historical place in Surabaya, very good architecture inside the monument area. I would say one of the best monumental area in Indonesia. The surroundings ussually used for local market in sunday morning.
  • This monument Tugu Pahlawan, Heroes Monument, is the symbol of Surabaya and is built to respect the heroes who fought for independence. This rocket-like monument points towards the moon 41.15 meters high. Along with the monument, there is a museum where diorama of Surabaya in 1945 is displayed. History of Surabaya at that time could be seen through pictures, clips, and stories. There are other buildings surrounding the monument to depict the struggles Indonesians had to go through.
  • Free entry (just pay a parking fee if you ride a vehicle), friendly staff to guide you around are available in the office. The location sorounded with a beautiful garden, also you can find many historical old weapons that used to defend Surabaya long time ago.

Where to stay in Surabaya

Look near the main attractions and major shopping areas to find pricier and luxurious accommodations. Affordable and cheerful hostels and rental apartments often sit in the shadows cast by the skyscraper hotels. Lodgings by the harbor and along the surrounding arterial road provide convenient travel options for those wishing to get out of town easily.
