AttractionsThe capital of Kwazulu Natal and one of Africa’s most picturesque and important historical cities, Pietermaritzburg has a rich heritage of museums and galleries, over 39 National Monuments, and an architecture strongly influenced by the British Colonial era. Many of the streets bear the names of famous generals which attests to the region’s colourful and heroic past. The city has gone to great lengths to maintain it’s predominantly Victorian/Edwardian character and standing out among the many red-brick Victorian and Edwardian is the City Hall – one of the largest all- brick buildings in the Southern Hemisphere. One of the best ways to bring local history alive is by taking one of the self-guided Town Trails, details of which can be found in pamphlets supplied by the Pietermaritzburg Publicity Association, or by joining one of the PPA's sponsored guided tours. Numerous local and international sporting and cultural events are hosted by the city throughout the year which combine to create a warm and entertaining environment for resident and visitor alike.
