Welcome to Blitar
A low-key provincial city, Blitar is off the standard Javan tourist trails, but with several compelling sights in the vicinity, a hotel worth travelling for and a quiet and gentle atmosphere, Blitar is well worth a visit. The town makes a good base for visiting the Panataran temple complex and the spectacular active volcano of Gunung Kelud. It’s also the home of Indonesia's first president, Sukarno; his memorial is worth checking out.
