Discover Johannesburg

While Johannesburg is not one of South Africa's three capital cities, it is the seat of the Constitutional Court.

Johannesburg began as a 19th-century gold-mining settlement. Its sprawling Soweto township was once home to Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu.

Mandela's former residence is now the Mandela House museum. Other Soweto museums that recount the struggle to end segregation include the sombre Apartheid Museum and Constitution Hill, a former prison complex.
