Yogyakarta is a city in Indonesia, one of popular destinations in Indonesia for tourism. Located in Java island and flanked by the Indian Ocean and Mount Merapi, Yogyakarta offers diverse attractions. The impressive nature, cultural heritages, and handicraft industries make Yogyakarta a unique place to visit.


Yogyakarta is constituted of lowland with beaches on the south and beautiful mountains on the north. Both are easily accessible and become major attractions because of their beautiful nature. With its fertile soil, Yogyakarta's agro-tourism industry also becomes another important point of interest.


Historically, Yogyakarta is considered as an important city. As early as the 9th century, several ancient kingdoms had made Yogyakarta their capital. Like other kingdoms at that time, the kingdoms in Yogyakarta were greatly influenced by religious beliefs. Three major religions had ever been the basis of those kingdoms in Yogyakarta, namely Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam. The historical traces of these kingdoms can still be seen until now, mainly from Hinduism and Buddhism kingdoms. Amongst them are several temple compounds: the Borobudur Temple, the Prambanan Temple, the Sewu Temple, etc.


Yogyakarta also contributed to the independence history of the Republic of Indonesia. Yogyakarta had ever become the capital of the Republic of Indonesia, due to the extremely alarming conditions of Jakarta at the time of independence struggle. The traces of this struggle can also still be seen in Yogyakarta.


Yogyakarta is nowadays considered as the stronghold of Javanese culture, a culture that is highly valued. In the palace of Yogyakarta, the Javanese culture is well maintained by Yogayakarta Sultanate. The current Sultan of Yogyakarta is Sultan Hamengkubuwono X that resides with his family, all nobles and their family in the palace, Kraton Ngayogyakarta. To this date, various traditional arts still exist in society, amongst them are the famous wayang and batik.


Last but not least, Yogyakarta has been becoming one of the students' destinations to continue their studies due to its tranquil atmosphere. For this reason, Yogyakarta is also well-known in Indonesia as the city of students.


We are looking forward to seeing you in Yogyakarta!
