Pretoria, South Africa

Pretoria is the administrative capital of South Africa. Founded in 1855, it was named after Andries Pretorius. From then on, it became Transvaal's capital in 1860, and later on South Africa's capital in 1910. The city itself has a population of around 450,000 people and maintains a relaxed atmosphere with streets lined with jacaranda trees.

Important buildings and institutions in the city include six museums, Voortrekker Monument, statues of Paul Kruger and Lous Botha, Catholic Cathedrals, nature reserves, National Zoological Gardens, and the universities of Pretoria and South Africa.
