Cruises from Surabaya
Surabaya is Indonesia’s second largest city and the capital of East Java. It is located on the NE coast of Java, sheltered by the island of Madura in the Java Sea. This is “the city of heroes”, whereby during a battle between Indonesian nationalists and British/Dutch forces in 1945 Indonesia galvanised its claims to independence. The city’s 800-year recorded history includes sultanates, Dutch East India Company trading, and Japanese occupation.
This multi-ethnic city is a seaport and commercial centre replete with significant shopping malls, museums, mosques, a zoo, and many military statues. Surabaya is well known as the Heroes City.
