The grounds are very well-manicured! The steps are great for exercising and the views from the parking lot is great. Im not too crazy about all the apartheid era memorabilia

I enjoyed the gallery inside and the icon statues and there is plenty of information that one can learn from. The place is accessible and close to the public. You can bring along with camera to take pictures and also its nice when your are wearing casual.The place is beautiful.

I enjoyed a visit to the union building which is a symbol of unity in diversity. I enjoyed the view from the Union building where Pretoria is seen better from there. The park at the union building is a place to relax and enjoy yourself with family having your picnic basket. The atmosphere is very welcoming.

There are a lot of benches under the shade and stone made stairs. There is also an area where you can host gatherings. There is the very tall statue of... More

This had absolutely stunning views and was definitely worth a walk around. I couldn't get enough pictures as I walked around and has an amazing view of the buildings from a far during the night.
