Earth : Asia : Southeast Asia : Indonesia : Java : East Java : Blitar
Blitar is a city in East Java.
The main claim to fame of this quiet and charming town is as the birth and burial place of Indonesia's founding father, Sukarno. The other attractions for visitors are the largest ancient Hindu temple in East Java, the very active volcano Mount Kelud and a couple of nice beaches.
Blitar is the capital town of a regency with the same name.
There are several losmen type places in the town centre and budget travellers are urged to just turn up here. You will not have a problem finding somewhere to stay.
