The medical world has grown so rapidly. Then was it partly stems from the
 tradition of traditional medicine smell "mystical"? 

Is black magic really exist? Is it possible to believe, the pain suffered by a person because there are nails, hair, pellet, or the graveyard, in the stomach and chest? The answer can be found at the Health Museum, located on Jl. Indrapura 17 Surabaya.Yes, the museum is often referred to people as a museum of witchcraft, it is enough to provide a scientific record of the results of health research that flourished in this land of emerald equator. In one room sits, there is a special display case that holds all things related to witchcraft. 

There is a bowl-shaped pottery witchcraft tools and puppets of people with stomach stuck a nail. There is a rotten egg, hair, thread, and more. "Instruments of witchcraft that we get from the original witches. Meanwhile, around him are goods which succeeded in out of body people affected by black magic, "said Mubaroch, Head of Information and Library Network Subbid Sisjakkes Center (Center for Research and Development of Health Systems and Policies). In addition, there are the scanned picture of a baby that looked full of plug pins on the chest and stomach. There's another photo scans showing three buckshot lodged in the ribs adults. This fact, he said, clearly illustrate that story around black magic really exist in the realm of our health sciences. He is not a figment story. In fact, medical cases like this sometimes untouchable modern medical technology. "The treatment would only be reached by another road, with the power of science a kind of a more positive," he added.  In the other

Surabaya Heritage Track House of Sampoerna

Surabaya - The town is a witness to the persistence arek-arek Suroboyo against the occupiers, one of the places that became history in Surabaya is Building the House of Sampoerna, located on Jl. Taman Sampoerna Surabaya No.6.

Given a little histor
y of the House of Sampoerna. In 1862 the building magnificent legacy from the Age of the Netherlands was built, an ancient building with pillars of smoke that reads "234" (Dji Sam Soe) on top of it. The founder of Sampoerna, Liem Seeng Tee bought this place in 1932 and then make it as a place of Sampoerna's first cigarette production, while traveling one of the largest tobacco industry in the country.
House of Sampoerna which used as acommercial business industry, has now become one of the resorts that contain entertainment, history, as well as knowledge.In this museum also has a place not to miss art galleries, shops, and cafes.

In addition, to promote tourism in Surabaya, House of Sampoerna held the program "Sampoerna for Indonesia" and bus Surabaya Heritage Track (SHT). Monday (6 / 2009) SHT inaugurated by the mayor of Su
rabaya Bambang DH, on the museum page House of Sampoerna. A bus is a kind of tram-shaped with bright red color. The bus is a kind of tour bus carrying vacationers to surround some parts of the city of Surabaya, especially his old town area.

No expenses are charged to participate in this tour only with a ticket (can be obtained at the House of Sampoerna). Tracker (passenger buses) to enjoy and recognize the buildings heritage, historical city of Surabaya is known as a city of heroes, the stories chronicle of Surabaya, the wealth of cultural diversity and to get information of other tourist attractions in Surabaya with a friendly guide, a comfortable bus, and without spending a penny fare.

If you want to join this tour, had a reservation in advance. Could also go show. However, when it's full of his seat had to wait for the next hour, or some other time. Once the trip, provided seat 20.SHT is a "gift" from the Foundation for the Surabaya. Operated since June 2009.Some time after the anniversary of the city of Surabaya on May 31. SHT is intended for people much more familiar with the historical "Surabaya".

Many of us often pass on these sites, but never know what historical event that had occurred there. 
Perhaps the only famous Red Bridge and Hotel Majapahit only.Because not know this, many historic buildings in Surabaya restored and built new buildings.There are two types of trips organized by the 
House of Sampoerna (HOS) of this. Ie short trips and long trips. The duration of each trip are both 
one hour. Only the course route and day different. For short distance trips, usually done on Weekdays (Tuesday through Thursday). While the long trip, made on the weekend (Friday to Sunday). On 

Monday there was no alias is a holiday trip. The journey begins from the House of Sampoerna (HOS) 

and ends there as well. The route passed the Prison Kalisosok, Tugu Pahlawan, Jalan Kramat Gantung, 

Jalan Tunjungan, Jalan Pemuda, then headed to Jalan Gentengkali.Roads and Road Through Blauran lathe bus back to the HOS. The bus stops twice, namely at the Institute for Youth and Cak Durasim Building 

(Arts Building East Java).

Then on Sunday, at the Youth Center there will be performances reog, and in Building Cak Durasim many little kids to practice dancing. Youth Hall was once the ball room (Societet) 

during the Dutch era. While the building was once the palace of Cak Durasim Kanoman Surabaya. If the short trip route is not too far from the HOS. But the truth is no less attractive with a long trip. Its object, is entered into a bunker owned by PTPN XI. Unfortunately, I have not tried that go into this bunker. I think, seems more interesting this short trip.

Within a day, funny and unique bus based in the House of Sampoerna is undergoing trip three times, ie at 10:00 to 11:30 pm, 1:00 p.m. to 14:30 pm, and 3:00 p.m. to 16:30 pm. For Friday-Sunday, extended trip time and a half hours to 09:00 to 11:00 am, 13:00 to 14:30 am and 15:00 to 17:00 pm.
