Map of Yogyakarta


Most of the sights of Yogyakarta city are arranged along Malioboro Street, which is also the city's traditional shopping district. At one end of the wide boulevard is the Kraton, or sultan's palace. The Kraton is actually a huge complex of interesting things to see, which not only includes the sultan's current residence, but also the old water palace and a carriage museum.

Away from Malioboro Street, other interesting sights include the old city of Kota Gede and the museum of one of Indonesia's premier artists, Affandi.
