Jakarta is the capital city of the island nation of Indonesia. The city is located on the northwest coast of Java, one of the largest of thousands of islands that make up the country. Its rich cultural history is reflected in its architecture, with Chinese, Arab, Indian, Malay and European influences. A former Dutch colony, Indonesia has been proudly independent since 1945, but the old town of Kota Tua is still home to Dutch colonial buildings. Attractions to visit include the old port of Sunda Kelapa, and Monas Tower, a monument that symbolizes the freedom of independence after years of colonial rule.
