Semarang is the capital of Central Java regency. Semarang is one city with a very active port, it grew into a major city busy with trade and administrative importance. In Semarang, we can find many old building from colonial inheritance and its impressive buildings. One of Semarang's most outstanding buildings and, fortunately, one of its best kept, is Gereja Blenduk. Built in 1753, this imposing building still stands shimmering brilliantly white in the hot sun. Despite being the oldest church in Central Java, it is still actively used as a Protestant Church. The church is rather plain on the outside, but its solid design and construction have no doubt helped it survive the years. Just down the road from this building is the Marba Building which, with its red bricks contrasting with stone mullions and a corner entrance that is topped by four (still intact) stone vases, is full of character. Although the Marba Building looks bad, its partial use is at least saving it to a certain extent; elsewhere, neglect is leaving fine buildings in ruins. Semarang has many beautiful old buildings. So tourist can take a look around by using becak, a traditional transportation. Sdont worry about hotels...Semarang has many luxurious can choose one you what you waiting for...just contact your travel agent and fly to Semarang....see you there...
