Pretoria is one of the three capital cities of South Africa and the seat of government administration. (Cape Town is the legislative capital and Bloemfontein the judicial capital) it is a modern city built on the wealth of the Cullinan Diamond mines. It is a fascinating city with old and new history in its timeline and one sees this in the buildings and streets of Pretoria. It is in the region of Tswane but the city is still called Pretoria.
