Jembatan Merah, Surabaya

2.5
A testament to the battle of Surabaya that occurred on November 10, 1945, Jembatan Merah witnessed some of the most savage fighting in the region. The bridge was formerly under Dutch colonization, and it is here that local soldiers fought off the Dutch. Today the red structure carries an important legacy and stands as a symbol of independence for the people of Surabaya. Located in a commercial area, it connects the financial sector to residential areas. While in the area, consider exploring other Dutch heritage sites nearby, as well as some small and inexpensive shopping stalls.

  • The increasing population of the community in Surabaya is now everywhere. Included in the Red Bridge area of Surabaya. With city government interference, now the bridge is never bad and now back to be slick. Need awareness to maintain and preserve a historic place.. Ciayooo

  • This is a famous place, because there are a lot of thieves. From stealing things to punching people for money. So you really have to be especially careful. Although it's not safe to be accompanied by a local.

  • Such a nice view around
  • The bridge that has been apart of independence war against Dutch & Japan colonial. Then it should be part of historical place in Surabaya. In fact, this bridge is still used as well as an ordinary one. It located nearby the Surabaya Port & the Chinatown.
