GeographyEdit

Bengawan Solo "divides" this regency into two parts. The northern part is commonly lowland and wavy, forming the catchment area of Surakarta city. while the southern part is mountainous.

Near the northern border are the developmental areas surrounding Surakarta City such as Grogol and Kartosuro, which lie within the metropolitan area of that city. Kartosuro is the junction of the Solo-Yogyakarta track with Solo-Semarang. Sukoharjo Regency is crossed by the Solo-Wonogiri railway, which re-operated in 2004 after being unused for many years. This railway is one of the most "dangerous" ones in Indonesia because it is located beside the main road without any barrier.
