Voortrekker Mon­u­ment

Tshwane Business Travel Guide - - News -

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.”
