Pretoria

 Cape Town | Johannesburg | Port Elizabeth | Durban | Pretoria | Bloemfontein


Pretoria is a city located in the northern part of Gauteng Province.
It is one of the country's three capital cities, serving as the executive (administrative) and official de facto capital; the other two being Cape
Town and Bloemfontein, respectively the legislative and judicial capitals.

Known as the Jacaranda City for all the purple blossom-bedecked trees which line its thoroughfares, Pretoria is a lovely, quiet city. It has a long, involved and fascinating history.

Here you will find many significant old buildings and some fascinating museums.
The Transvaal Museum has wonderful natural history displays and is the home of Mrs Ples, the australopithecine fossil found at Sterkfontein in the Cradle of Humankind. Also worth visiting are the Cultural History Museum and the Smuts Museum, just outside town.

It's a great town - there are quite a few open spaces where you can walk or mountain bike. Nearby is the Premier Game Reserve, next door to the Cullinan Diamond Mine, where the largest diamond in the world was found.
