One of the most charming Victorian-style towns with a village feel best describes Cullinan, an old mining town located east of Pretoria in the Gauteng Province. The town is best known for the largest diamond ever discovered and diamonds are still being extracted here.
Cullinan is named after Sir Thomas Cullinan, a prospector who started a mining operation at the start of the 20th Century and was later knighted for his contribution to industry.
