Abstract

The municipality of Semarang as the capital of Central Java has been established since 1547 AD. Therefore, it has many historical heritages. Heritage has even existed since the Hindu Buddhist period. The legacy of the colonial period in Semarang is also abundant. One of the monumental is the old city area of Semarang. This historical legacy has a strategic meaning in strengthening people's identities. However, there are always problems found in preserving historical heritage in the city of Semarang. One of the issues that is often encountered is environmental problems. At some point, environmental problems are found, such as tidal flood, slum environment, to vandalism. This problem is an obstacle in preserving historical heritage in Semarang.
