Nestled in the heart of Central Java, surrounded by volcanic hills and cultural attractions, Solo (also known as Surakarta) is one of Indonesia’s most charming cities. The former seat of the ancient Mataram Empire and Surakarta Sunanate, the city has grown to become a modern hub of trade and tourism. Leisure travellers can also discover a wide range of local places of interest, including Mangkunegaran Palace, Keraton Surakarta Palace, Kawean Batik Village and more.
Solo is served by Adi Sumarmo International Airport, which offers regular connections to and from Jakarta, Bali and other domestic destinations, plus a limited number of international flights. Swiss-Belhotel Solo is located just 11.6 km from the airport.
