Vredeburg Museum, The Most Historical Site at The Heart of Yogyakarta

Right beside Jogja Zero Kilometer, you can see a fame building in which historical remains exist. Yups, Fort Vredeburg Museum is an excellent start to explore the history of Indonesia as well as Yogyakarta City.
This old fortress was built during the reign of Sultan Hamengkubuwono I to protect Jogja Palace from the enemy thread. Fort Vredeburg had undergone several renovations and changes. Its name was initially known as Rustenburg, and then it was changed in 1867 to Vredeburg until today.

What can you do there? I said, many. As a museum, Vredeburg is a great place to explore, especially about the history of Jogja. Its architecture and pattern will make you amazed.

Besides, there are four rooms of dioramas representing a different period of Indonesia special events. Each diorama has its uniqueness in which you can learn many things about Indonesia and Yogyakarta.

At a specific time, you can also watch a short movie about Indonesia history. There are also art performances usually held in the first part of the museum.
