Johannesburg, South Africa's biggest city and capital of Gauteng province, 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 somber Apartheid Museum and Constitution Hill, a former prison complex.
Johannesburg -- or Jozi, Joburg or JHB -- is the largest city in South Africa and the provincial capital of Gauteng, the wealthiest province in the country. Johannesburg is one of the largest 50 urban agglomerations in the world and the largest city in the world that is not located on a coast, lake or river. Johannesburg has an estimated population of 4.4 million in 2016.
Johannesburg has an estimated 2016 population of 4.4 million, while the Greater Johannesburg Metropolitan Area has a population estimated at 8 million, unofficially. If the metropolitan area is defined loosely to include areas like the West Rand and Lenasia, the population is about 10.5 million.
Interestingly, Johannesburg has the largest man-made forest in the world with about 6 million trees. Johannesburg grew overnight when gold was discovered in 1896, drawing people from around the world. By 1931, the population had reached 400,000, which then doubled during the Second WorldWar. In 1995, the UN estimated the Johannesburg metropolitan area had a population of 1.8 million. Johannesburg experienced some decline in the 1990s, although is is now experiencing rapid growth once more. According to the City of Johannesburg, the city needs a plan for a population growth of about 66% in the next 30 years, which includes plans to improve access to clean water, energy and the management of waste and sanitation. Johannesburg is projected to grow to 6.5 million by 2040.
