Johannesburg is the third largest city in Africa and the fastest growing community in South Africa. This city was built on gold mines, and tourists can get that story in a museum called Gold Reef City. Whether you are here for a vacation or a weekend, Johannesburg has plenty for you to see and do. There are many museums, including the James Hall Transport Museum, the African Herbalist Shop, and Museum Africa. For art lovers there is the Johannesburg Art Gallery. A complex called Montecasino houses a casino, theaters and spa. Near Johannesburg are the fascinating Sterkfontein Caves, sit of the discovery of the cranium of a 2.5 million-year-old ape-man. In nearby Soweto visitors can see the Mandela Museum in the former home of Nelson and Winnie Mandela.
A larger establishment, Sunnyside Park Hotel offers a number of rooms to choose from. The comfortable rooms are 4-star rated. One of the landmarks in Johannesburg is Constitution Hill. Gold Reef City isn't hard to reach from this accommodation.
