    Fort Van Der Wijck, the Historical Site Along the Main Road of Yogya



    Van Der Wijck Fort, with it's main color red is a quite remarkable building in between the others and the entrance gate to the tourist area is at quite some distance from the gate of the fort as well. The tourist area has a mini-train that brings visitors from the main entrance to the fort. You don't have to worry about to do when you are at the location, the only thing is that the kids might get somewhat bored inside. Outside however there is a large playground for them.

    Don't forget to bring the kids to the giant replica of a dinosaur just in front of the fort. On top of the fort there also is a mini-train constructed, this takes you on a round trip over the roof of the old structure. Inside the fort visitors will see a number of pictures used as documentation to the original fort before the time changes were made to its looks.

    Military barracks, service posts and rooms that were used for many different purposes can be viewed in a pretty nice and clean condition. The only strange thing is a sign near the entrance that asks you to do a prayer according to your own religion before entering the fort.
