More info about Pietermaritzburg

Founded in 1838 and named after two Voortrekkers, Pietermaritzburg is the provincial capital of KwaZulu-Natal Province in South Africa. Although a fairly large city, Pietermaritzburg has retained some of its quaintness with the old market square, pavilion & bandstand and narrow pedestrian lanes in some parts of the city.

Pietermaritzburg became a British stronghold in the 1840s and rich Victorian architecture and a bygone military presence is evident throughout this city.

The Midlands Meander, a scenic arts and crafts route, begins in Pietermaritzburg.

Pietermaritzburg is known the world over for the Comrades Marathon, a 90km endurance race that has taken place between Durban and the city since 1921, the number of entrants reaching 20000 annually.

Sometimes referred to as Sleepy Hollow, other times as the City of Flowers, Pietermaritzburg has a great deal of historic charm with a vitality owing to the vast amount of KwaZulu-Natal University students in attendance.
