Grundriss von der Stadt und dem Schlosse Batavia

Antique city plan of Batavia with text in German. This colourised copperplate engraving of Batavia is based on how the city was laid out ca. 1790. At the time, Batavia was a port protected by the namesake Fort Batavia and surrounded by defensive walls. While most of the old city is gone, the core remains as the well-known Kota Tua district of Jakarta.
