Tips for you
Very amazing well preserve Catholic church which build by Dutch government in Surabaya. The structure is made from brick stones and amazingly still intact at this 21th century. The room/church hall is very cold even they didn't have air conditioner, very good architecture. If by chance you can see it on Google Map sattelite, notice the church model is infact like a cross with a holly ring in the upper/above area. The Dutch is very genious when construct it
A very spiritual church. You may sit there for hours and relax ...The building yaks you back to centuries and the environment flys you to deep into spirituality. You don't feel you are in surabaya ...
I think even though this building looks nice, but it is not supported with other special thing like a bell keep ringing or something that would make this building more interesting for tourist. And sometimes also there are many banner/ spanduk in front of the building that makes it more awful.
This church in the middle of Surabaya City, exactly in the Center, where U could go easier. Good for the Catholic Rome people to pray in this church. Old enough & historical to for Surabaya City.
