  • On the river in the centre of Surabaya. The submarine was first launched in 1962. Can’t believe how thin it is. To walk through the submarine is not easy as you have to step through small circular...

  • Clean and well maintained. Car park cost 10k, entrance fee 15k/person. You can see KRI Pasopati there, it is a russian whiskey class. You can also watch the video about the Indonesian Navy at the building beside the submarine.
  • It's a simple exhibit, but still lots of fun, exploring the inside of a submarine! Amazing how an entire crew could operate in such claustrophobic spaces! Entrance charge is 15,000 Rp! *PS: they painted the sub green, which I didn't like, hence the photos are rendered in monochrome for effect!
