Best things to do and see in Johannesburg
Although Johannesburg is not the capital of the South African country, you wouldn’t notice it as its diversity and its densely populated urban metropolis make up for this to make it a truly amazing place to visit. At the southern tip of the African continent, this city enjoys a pleasant climate that makes it perfect for exploring the iconic landmarks and archeological sites that make it so famous. Even though there are traces of humans inhabiting this area for many centuries, the official city of Johannesburg was founded on a small farm where gold was discovered in 1886.
