Map

Pietermaritzburg is the capital and the second biggest city in the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa. Founded in 1838, it is, at present, governed by the Msunduzi Local Municipality. People popularly refer to it as Maritzburg and even the abbreviated name PMB is in use.

It is important as the industrial centrre producing aluminium, timber and dairy products. It is also significant for its role in terms of economy in Umgungundlovu District Municipality. Since local, district and provincial governments operate from here, they provide a lot of employment to the people. There are a number of schools and tertiary institutes including the University of KwaZulu-Natal. 600,000 residents live in the city which gives an idea about the vast population and the development of the city.

It was the Voortrekkers who founded the city after the defeat of Dingane at the Battle of Blood River. It was also the capital of Natalia, which did not last long. Britain took possession of Pietermaritzburg in 1843. Later it got the wrong kind of attention when Gandhi got thrown out of a train at Pietermaritzburg station. In 1910, when the Union of South Africa came into being, Natal became a province of the Union and Pietermaritzburg served as the capital.

There are two versions regarding how it came to be called Pietermaritzburg. First one suggests that it was named after Piet Retief and Gert Maritz, two Voortrekker leaders. The other version indicates that it was named after Piet Retief alone because his full name was Pieter Maurits Retief.

The University of Natal came into existence in 1910 as the Natal University College. It later saw the expansion to Durban in 1922. In March 1949, the two campuses got merged into the University of Natal. The university grew in importance because it emerged as a voice of protest during the apartheid. It was the first of the universities to admit black students. In 2004, it got its present day name University of KwaZulu-Natal.

As far as its economy is concerned, the area was well known for the first rate textile, clothing and footwear products that it produced. Doc Marten shoes produced from here were quite famous. These industries did not sustain for long. Since 2002, the Liberty Group has invested in the region in a big way. Liberty Midlands Mall, the area's largest shopping centre, and Stay Easy Hotel came up as a part of these investments. Hulett's Aluminium and Willowton cooking oil also contribute to the economy.

Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife, Alexandra Park, KwaZulu-Natal National Botanical Garden etc. are parks that your can explore. If you want to go for shopping, you can try out Liberty Midlands Mall, Cascades Lifestyle Centre, Wembley Centre, Pietermaritzburg The Victoria Centre - Vukile. Swaadisht Foods, Rockafella's Theatre of Food, Jolly Foods Pmb are some of the popular places to eat.

Maritzburg College, Epworth School, Pietermaritzburg Girls' High School, St. John's Diocesan School For Girls are well known educational institutions in this area.

Pietermaritzburg is situated on the N3 higway which is the primary route between the harbour city of Durban and Pretoria-Johannesburg-Witwatersrand network. The R33 and the R56 connect Pietermaritzburg to the neighbouring areas like Lephalale via Greytown, Paulpietersburg, Carolina, Belfast, Ixopo, Kokstad, Mthatha, East London, Port Elizabeth, George and Mossel Bay etc. There is Pietermaritzburg Airport located here for air connectivity. There is a regular bus and train service as well.
