  Union Buildings, Pretoria
by dejavu2gb

Designed by Sir Herbert Baker, and stretching for 257m, is the gorgeous Union Building, located in the Capital of South Africa, Pretoria.
Standing majestically on Meintjies Kop overlooking Pretoria, surrounded by its beautifully manicured gardens, makes it one of the most popular sights in Pretoria.
The name originates from the time when South Africa was referred to a union, and then in 1961 it changed to the Republic of South Africa, but the building still kept its name, and has been known as the Union Building, ever since.

Address: Church Street, Pretoria, Gauteng.
