Benteng Vredenburg (Fort Vredenburg)
Built in 1765, Fort Vredung was the home of the Dutch Colonial Army stationed in Jogjakarta to protect the interests of the Dutch East India Company (Die Kompanie). The fort was also used as a refuge for the Dutch colonial families in times of trouble. Restored in 1980, it provides an interesting glimpse into the lives of the Dutch colonial military. Today, some of the former barracks house patriotic Dioramas of the fight for independence, from a primarily Indonesian point of view.
