“The Kraton, Reflection of Javanese Cosmos The Kraton (also spelled keraton or karaton) or the Palace of Yogyakarta, is a grand complex that was meticulously planned to reflect the Javanese cosmos. This elegant complex of pavilions was constructed based on ancient beliefs, of the connection between the God, human and the natural realms. Each feature holds a special symbolic meaning related to the Javanese worldview, who consider the importance of Mount Merapi and The Indian Ocean. The Kraton was built in the center, facing directly north towards the majestic Mount Merapi. Its south side was built facing the Indian Ocean, believed to be the abode of Kanjeng Ratu Loro Kidul, the Queen of the South Seas and the mystical consort of the Sultan. This splendid example of traditional Javanese architecture has no equal. The basic and original layout of the main building of The Kraton began its construction during the reign of Sultan Hamengku Buwono I, in 1755 - 1756. Get Around Visitors can explore the palace’s interiors on foot. The palace is open to visitors from 08.30 am to 12.30 pm except on Fridays and Saturdays which it closes at 11.00 am. It is closed in the afternoons. Note that there are also special rules made to be respected when you visit The Kraton, so please make sure you follow them for a memorable experience in Yogyakarta. After visiting The Kraton area, you can also stroll around the nearby attractions, such as Malioboro Street and Beringharjo Market. Taman Sari complex is also related to the royal history, and it consists of a beautiful water castle and a unique underground mosque named Sumur Gumuling. Address: Jl. Rotowijayan Blok No. 1, Kota Yogyakarta, Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta Get There Located about 12 km from our stay, The Kraton can be accessed by cars, taxi, bus and local transports like becak and andong. Becak and Andong - a horse-drawn cart - ride are the fun way to explore The Kraton area while experiencing a glimpse of Yogyakarta’s city vibe with its warm-hearted locals.”

“Literally in the heart of the city this living palace called Kraton is not a museum, part of it is open to the public. You don't need to book a tour. You can buy tickets at the entrance, quite often older man dressed in traditional palace costumes (the real thing mind you), offer to walk you around. It is not much of a help, but it is their way to make bit of extra income and they are very proud of this place. When you are done or want to continue by yourself you say many thanks (terima kashi) give discreetly whatever you like to give. Let your heart speak. It is an interesting visit. The Sultan is still there, the only Royal family in the Republic with the special status Yogya has. You see carriages, antique cars and the place breathes a special atmosphere.”

Restaurante de cocina mediterránea
“My favorite - everything fresh - even mayonnaise made a la minute - my choice is always a Ceasar Salad: the best really. Good wine by the caraf and reasonably priced. Run by Kamil who brings the best of France to this place. Also they sell home made French bread. Lunch and dinner. When we go for dinner we go at 5, than all the tables free. Have a drink and appetizer and we still walk out 3 hours later. Come at 7 you'll be waiting for a table. Pass by earlier in the day and make a reservation for a time that is better for you;”
