During the 9th century the area around Solo was dominated by Hindu and Buddhistic empires. At that time important constructions were realised such as the Borobudur,the Prambanancomplex and the Kraton Hadiningrat
The kraton (palace) of Solo has been since 1745 the residence of the sultan of Surakarta. The building is situated along the riverbed of the Solo river, the longest river on Java. Alike the kraton of Yogyakarta the kraton of Solo was considered to be the centre of the cosmos. Ordinary visitors are never allowed to enter the kraton by the northern gate, that gate is only open for special occasions.
Visitors can get a guided tour for a small fee at the eastern gate. In 1985 a big part of the kraton burnt down, partially because the firemen weren’t allowed to pass the holy entrance gate.
It’s also nice shopping in Solo. Besides big shops like Matahari, the national warehouse chain, you can also go to the Pasar Klewer for batikfabrics or to the Balai Agung to buy some traditional souvenirs on the market.
