Welcome to Solo Hotel & Information
A prominent destination in Central Java, most people tend to refer to the Indonesian city of Surakarta as simply Solo. Together with nearby Yogyakarta, Solo was once part of the former Mataram Kingdom and has grown into a busy and sizeable city, with wide streets, vibrant local markets, a very apparent Javanese cultural heritage and dramatic views of the region's famous active volcano, Mount Merapi.
Tourism is definitely on the up in Solo and tourists will find that the locals really are extremely friendly and welcoming. The city is now a notable textile centre, specialising in wax-dyed 'batik' fabric, although is also known for its performing arts and related academies.
