I had heard/read that central Pretoria had degenerated markedly, so I was pleasantly surprised to note that the square was relatively litter free. There are numerous historical buildings surrounding the square, with Paul Kruger's statue taking a prominent position in the middle thereof.

Worth a visit to see the historical centre of town and the nice buildings there. The centrality and free wifi attracts a lot of people which brings a nice vibe to the area. You needn't allocate more than 30mins to this area to see everything....More
