Jembatan Merah Is More than just a bridge

Stand in the spot where history unfolded when you visit the demure yet culturally vital Jembatan Merah. This small red bridge in the heart of Surabaya is more than just a convenient way to cross the river. This is where the Battle of Surabaya began between pro-independence Indonesian soldiers against allied British, Dutch and Indian troops. This great battle became a symbol of the Indonesian resistance and helped garner international support that resulted in Indonesia's independence. Feel the history here.
