The Jacaranda City
Pretoria is called The Jacaranda City as it is transformed in a lilac wonderland in spring by the hundreds of Jacaranda trees lining the sidewalks of the city and scattered throughoutg ardens. Students believe that if a Jacaranda blossom lands on your head you will pass your exams! The University of Pretoria (TUKS), The University of Technology (TUT) as well as UNISA are located in Pretoria which makes large parts of it a student mecca.
The city is the Executive Capital of South Africa and therefore houses the official home of the State President and other Government officials as well as the Union Buildings, the Executive Branch of Government.
The Voortrekker Monument and the newly built Freedom Park share the same hill and is visible from almost anywhere around the city.
The city of Pretoria forms part of the larger City of Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality; its suburbs alternate between the older established homes in large lush gardens and modern developments that include executive golf and country estates with large shopping malls.
