Cape Town - While Joburg is the fast-paced city hub of Gauteng, Pretoria certainly has a more laid-back air about it. Yes, the Jacaranda City rocks its own unique vibe.

Apart from being referred to as the Snor City back in the 80s, Pretoria is also called ‘Jakarandastad’, referring to the plenty of Jacaranda trees that line the streets. The trees are especially spectacular during the spring, when purple blooms cover the entire city in a blanket of flowers. 

And locals are using the city's free wifi to share this rather gorgeous and somewhat trademark look of the city in the downhill to summer. Take a look.
