Surabaya is known for its impressive–and well preserved–buildings that feature imperial and oriental style architectural styles. One of the city’s strongest architectural accents can be found its old quarter, where the House of Sampoerna sits. The stately, colonial-style compound features several buildings as well as a museum that tells the story of Liem Seeng Tee, the founder of the Sampoerna tobacco company.
