An unusual attraction located within the city centre, the Submarine Monument is actually a retired Russian submarine, which is officially named the ‘Pasopati’ and now serves as something of a museum, whilst honouring the lives of those who fought in the Arafura sea battle with the Dutch, in 1962. Sited alongside the Kalimas River and originating from the country’s Navy Armada, the Surabaya Submarine Monument (Monumen Kapal Selam) is conveniently close to Swarga Park and several good cafes. Step inside the submarine and you will find some interesting information about the region’s rich maritime heritage, as well as some scenes recreated with dioramas, and videos documenting the life of the Indonesian navy.
Open: Monday to Friday – 08:00 to 20:00, Saturday and Sunday – 08:00 to 22:00
