Surakarta or we call it Solo, is a city where I was born a few years ago, I live in Solo and graduated my senior high school in this beloved city too.
Let me describe the city simply. Well, it’s located in Province of Central Java, Indonesia with population of 503.421 souls. Surakarta name used in formal contexts, while the Solo name for an informal context.
The mayor of Solo is Mr. Ir. Joko Widodo or we call him “Jokowi” and vice mayor is Mr. F.X. Hadi Rudyatmo. I could say that Solo can develop rapidly when led by them, because we as society of Solo, have seen many changes that occurred in Solo city.
This is what makes Solo is the spirit of Java.
That’s just a little description about Solo. You can read in detail from Wikipedia. 🙂
After graduated from senior high school, I’ve to continue my school in Jogjakarta city where I study there. Atma Jaya Jogjakarta University is my college, it’s located in Jogja certainly. So, I’ll miss my hometown Solo! 😐
