When we're visit is already late evening, church was close and just only take a look from outside but still amazing church. Outside of the church there are few local street store who's sell an antique stuff, from old typing machine, camera, money, cassette, glasses, magazine or even Betamax video.

I have visited this church for Christmas mass on December 2014. This church was so classy and surrounded by beautiful old buildings. It made me felt happy. It is not difficult to find cab near the church as it is part of the tourism area. I really love this church architecture.

Old dutch building, and not a very good one at that. Is still a functioning church. The whole 'old Semarang' area is quite interesting though, as it is mostly well preserved.

This church was built in the mid 18th century during the Dutch colonisation. It was still being used today for Sunday services or wedding ceremony. It's located in the old town part of Semarang, surrounded by many old buildings. The church was very well maintained. Entering the church requires a small fee (around USD 2 per person).

The architecture lighting ambiance was romantic. Stroll along the old town district from this point at night. And do park your car here, looks like the safest place around (police officers seen nearby).
