Jogja 42 040


Yogyakarta ist einfach wunderschön. Es ist noch keine Grossmetropole wie Jakarta, sondern noch sehr traditionell. An vielen Orten fährt man noch mit “Becak” (weiter unten mehr dazu) oder man nimmt eine Kutsche, wenn man nur eine kurze Distanz zurücklegen möchte. Es gibt viele Mythen um den Vulkan Merapi und den Strand von Parangtritis mit seinem schwarzen Sand. Es gibt sogar ein bekanntes Lied das Yogyakarta heisst. Ihr gelangt dazu wenn ihr auf diesen Link klickt. Das Lied ist zwar schon ziemlich alt, aber ich finde es grossartig 😀

Yogyakarta is soo beautiful. It’s not a big metropolitan City like Jakarta, it’s still very traditional. In many places you still use the  becak” for a short distance There are many myths around the volcano Merapi and the beach of Parangtritis with its black sand. There is even a popular song called Yogyakarta”->  click on this link  The song is quite old, but in my opinion it’s still amazing 🙂


Malioboro, the most famous Street in Yogja.

Of course we had to visit the Kraton of Yogyakarta. It’s the Palace where the Sultan lives until today.

It is so beautiful, not so mawkish like in a Princessfairytale, but still very charming and precious.
