Up to 1886 Johannesburg was a small town without anything outstanding or popular. The destiny of this settlement was changed by the European named George Harrison who found a rich gold mine on the territory of the town. Starting from that time Johannesburg began developing rapidly and just 10 years later already 50 thousand of Europeans lived there. Today this is the largest megalopolis on the territory of South Africa, a famous industrial center and a popular resort. Johannesburg is surrounded by several satellites with each of them having its sights and places of interest, but you should start your exploration of the city from its unique buildings and cultural centers.
