Surabaya Submarine Monument

Asia's largest submarine monument draws visitors to the banks of the Kalimas River south of downtown Surabaya. Built in Vladivostok, Russia, in 1952, the KRI Pasopati 410 is a Whiskey-class sub that was used by the Indonesian navy from the early 1960s until it was decommissioned in 1990. Grounded on land and accessed by stairs, the 76-meter-long (249-foot-long) sub has been modified very little since its service days and even still smells a little of engine oil. Onboard, visitors can tour the submarine's crew quarters, officers' lounge, control room and torpedo room, and of course, look through the periscope.
