A Short Trip to SOLO

Solo as we all known as Surakarta was the destination of my recent trip with, again, my travel buddy, Sinthya. We reached the airport and then went straight to the hotel just to drop our bags and there we are ready for our city tour.


Our first stop is Taman Sriwedari, Museum Radya Pustaka, and Batik Danar Hadi that located very close to each other. There’s not much too see in Taman Sriwedari, beside a statue in front of the entrance, we also can visit some store that sells craft and souvenirs stuff. But, at the back of Taman Sriwedari, there’s a place for Wayang Orang Sriwedari performance, and we’re going there in the evening.

Next was Museum Radya Pustaka. It’s known as the oldest museum in Indonesia. There are many rooms inside the museum, where each room is dedicated to one theme, such as Keris, wayang kulit, gamelan, and so on. Inside, we could also found small library. At the back of the building, there’re some replicas of famous buildings in Surakarta and the surrounding (Sangga Juwana, Makam Imogiri, and Masjid Demak).
