The Vredeburg Fort
With bastions on all four corners, the fort is the home of the collection of dioramas projecting the Indonesian struggle for independence. Between June and July, the fort also usually hosts the renowned Festival Kesenian Yogyakarta (Yogyakarta Arts Festival). Besides exploring around the fort and museum, you can also stop by at Cafe Indische Koffie (open from 9 am to 11 pm) and have a try of various traditional menus, both Western and Indonesian menus, in a classic, elegant atmosphere. Enjoying the foods served at Indische Koffie will make you feel as if you were a Dutch mademoiselle or meneer on vacation. To get to the Vredeburg Fort, from Tugu Train Station you can walk to MALIOBORO 1 Bus Stop and catch a Trans Jogja 1A, 2A, or 3A. If you are coming from the direction of Adisutjipto Airport, find yourself a Trans Jogja 1A and stop at AHMAD YANI Bus Stop (in front of the fort).
