enjoyable walking tour through the sultans palace which is still used by current relatives when needed. many historical artifacts and interesting stories. note: no AC and little airflow, so plan to have water and shade cover! A must see when in Solo

I went here and bought a ticket for 20,000 to see the museum. But they force you to come with a guide. If you do not pay 50,000 more for a guide you cannot go inside even if you bought a ticket. It seems like...More

I love the history of this building. However, sorry to see lack of maintenance nowadays. You should visit this building if you go to Surakarta to see the history of the city

A small entrance fee plus a compulsory guide. The guide we have was extremely knowledgeable about the entire history of the Sultans palace. It's not as grand as the one in Jogjakarta but still worthwhile seeing. The Italian Marble requires shoes off. No photos allowed...More
