Pretoria - South Africa

Pretoria/City of Tshwane is the capital of South Africa

The Union Buildings


Looking west over the CBD from the Union Building gardens


Looking north, the Union Buildings in the distance


University of South Africa (UNISA), one of the largest distance education universities in the world. The Telkom Tower can be seen as well.


The City Centre


The city as seen from the north-west.


City Centre, with jacarandas in full bloom

I really like PTA, it's alot better than Johannesburg(dirty,backwards). Could use a couple of modern buildings and a signature tall one so i gave it a 9/10. PRAESTANTIA PRAEVALEAT PRAETORIA!!!

Wouldnt refer to jozi as dirty or backwards... pretoria is more relaxed, less business orientated. In terms of the City Centres Jozi is cleaner, safer and it has loads more entertainment, great architecture, restaurants when compared to pretoria's rather bland nationalistic 1970's architecture.

In Pretoria I love the Union Buildings, Church Sqaure (and Cafe Riche), and the best Skyscraper in South Africa - the 40F South African Reserve Bank Building (1988). That is the big black one that people keep mentioning.

But Jozi has the money - and its municipality is doing more than Tshwane (Pretoria) in terms of refuse removal, safety and security and attracting investment. Comparison? in Jozi CBD you have headquarters for Anglo American, Anglo Ashanti, BHP Billiton, ABSA, FNB, Standard Bank and many more. In Pretoria CBD you have government departments, thats all.

So in my view Pretoria has always been more relaxed than Jozi, but in terms of culture, vibe and money, Pretoria is a tad less progressive.
