Johannesburg, informally known as Jozi, Joburg, or "The City of Gold" is the largest city in South Africa. It was established in 1886 following the discovery of gold on what had been a farm. Due to an extremely large amount of gold found along the Witwatersrand, the population had grown to 100,000 inhabitants within ten years. Johannesburg is also the provincial capital and largest city of Gauteng, which is the wealthiest province in South Africa.

Essense of Johannesburg - Marshalltown Walking Tour - Cya On The Road

Today I'd like to invite you to walk with me through the emerging district of Marshalltown, where many major South African companies and banks have their HQs. As a result, some call here the Wall Street of South Africa. This is also an excellent opportunity to see the biggest city of South Africa and the most popular attractions in your own eyes and learn about the history of the city, the mining history of South Africa.

The last stop is a well-known local brewery, and you can enjoy a cold drink or two before you finish the walk.

I hope you'll enjoy it!
