There are many fine colonial-era buildings in this street and area. It is a great photographic opportunity. Many of these buildings were the head offices of important commercial and banking concerns.

Located at the old town of Surabaya, Jalan Veteran and Jalan Pahlawan full of old building. They are conservated and maintained as the heritage of Surabaya. Good location to visit when you are in Surabaya.

there is nothing much about this street except it is along the Tugu Pahlawan. It has a number of plazas and the road is always very busy with. Nothing special or historical. If you want to visit the Tugu Monument then it is ok or not you can just skip it.
