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.

There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Apartheid Museum, contemplate the long history of Mandela House, try to win big at Gold Reef City, and buy something for everyone on your list at Walter Sisulu Square.
