    The city of Tshwane is the cradle of the Union Buildings, residence of the Presidency and its government which shelters the Parliament during the winter.

    Known as the City of the Jacarandas because of all the purple-flowering jaracondas that line its streets at certain times of the year, Pretoria, or Tshwane as it is also called, is a charming, peaceful colonial-style town, with a long and often complex, but always fascinating history, which has shaped its current elegant form. The city of Tshwane is the cradle of the Union Buildings, residence of the Presidency and its government which shelters the Parliament during the winter. Pretoria is also a place of culture with a series of theatres, museums and monuments.



    Visit the Paul Kruger House Museum, the monument to the Voortrekkers, stop at the Union Buildings, and walk past Church Square which was the site of the most famous political trial in South African history, the Rivonia trial for treason.
