Gedung Merdeka -- "The Concordia "

This is the world most famous architectural art deco in Bandung. Named "Gedung Merdeka" this building is an icon of Bandung. Built in 1895 by two famous architect C.P. Wolff Schoemaker and Van Galen Last, they gave a name "Societiet Concordia" for this building, at the very first beginning this building was a country club for the upper Holland society lived in Bandung on their occupational period. As the history continued, this building was  used fot hosting 3 times Aian-African Summit.
Rich with historical record, this building is still well preserved and maintain by the local Government. Now, this building is a Museum and a paradise for photo hunting, especially for the couple who want to make their wedding photo album.
