Union Buildings

Conçu par Sir Herbert Baker, ce point de repère s'élève majestueusement sur Meintjieskop, donnant sur Pretoria. Les bâtiments comprennent un amphithéâtre semi-circulaire et ont été achevés en 1913, pour un coût de 1, 180,000 PGB. Les parties Est et Ouest représentent les deux langues, l'anglais et l'afrikaan. En bas, se trouvent le monument Delville Wood War Memorial, portant hommage aux troupes sud-africaines qui périrent pendant la Première Guerre mondiale, les statues des ministres sud-africains et un monument commémoratif de la police. Les visiteurs ne sont pas autorisés à pénétrer à l'intérieur des bâtiments, mais ils sont les bienvenus sur les sites environnants et à profiter de la vaste étendue des superbes jardins.

Voortrekker Monument

This massive granite building was built as a national shrine to commemorate the heroes of the epic Great Trek of the late 18th and early 19th Centuries. The four walls of the Hall of Heroes, which is the main body of the building, are decorated with an Italian frieze depicting the history of the Great Trek in 1838, when Afrikaaners left Cape Town for the hinterland. One of the most interesting features of the monument is the 260-step stairway which leads to the dome, and the spectacular view it offers of the city.
