Since it is just a short train trip away from Johannesburg, I figured I’d go have a look at Pretoria as well. Being a safe place to walk around, it felt a lot different from Johannesburg. And with the size of the city, it doesn’t take long to cover the centre of town. I get that this place might feel more “comfortable” for visitors to stay at, but there is not much to see/do… – I felt a day trip was enough. Church Square I imagine to be very nice, when overhauling is done. Now it was just a big, ugly construction site. After tumbling around the CBD area for a bit, which is just like any other CBD, really, I walked back to the train station, passing City Hall, which looked beautiful in its spring outfit. And that was it…
I went to Pretoria on the Gautrain. You need a travel card to top up to be able to get on.
