The majestic Voortrekker Monument is situated in the Tshwane region in a nature reserve and serves as a unique Monument commemorating the Pioneer history of Southern Africa and the history of the Afrikaner.
“The Monument was inaugurated in 1949. It was designed by architect Gerard Moerdijk. In the Hall of Heroes is the world’s longest historical marble frieze. A tapestry with more than three million stitches is housed in the Cenotaph Hall,” the site’s official webpage details. “Today it is the most visited heritage site of its kind in Gauteng and one of the top ten cultural historical visitor attractions in the country. It is also the only Grade 1 national Heritage Site in Pretoria. The Monument also manages the Blood River Heritage Site.”
