The Sultan's Palace (Kraton Sultan Palace, or simply Kraton) is a whole complex of buildings that once constituted the palace of the sultans of Yogyakarta. It was built in the XVIII century, and is an example of traditional Javanese architecture. In general, Kraton is considered the main and must-visit attraction of Yogyakarta, but foreign tourists should not expect too much from it. Unfortunately, the signatures to the exhibits inside are not translated into English, when buying tickets, guidebooks with explanations are not issued. Therefore, while visiting the palace, you will just walk around and look at the architecture, and vaguely guess the meaning and history of some of the exhibits.

The palace is quite large, and at least a couple of hours should be allocated for its visit. It consists of two parts with separate entrances and payment, it is worth visiting both parts. Inside, in addition to architecture, in separate rooms you will see exhibitions-museums of household items, batik, weapons, personal belongings belonging to the sultans, photo chronicles, cars of the sultans, an ethnographic exhibition. You can freely move around the territory and take pictures of everything, but when buying tickets you need to buy a special tag for a nominal fee-permission for photography.
