Founded when gold was discovered in the area in the late 19th century, Johannesburg quickly grew into a bustling metropolis, South Africa's largest city and the region's economic hub.
Change things up with these side-trips from Johannesburg: Pretoria (Union Buildings & Voortrekker Monument). There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at Apartheid Museum, find something for the whole family at Gold Reef City, don't miss a visit to Nelson Mandela Square, and deepen your understanding of the past and present with Constitution Hill.
