Just imagine a very progressive city, even with the absence of the bodies of water, this largest city survived with no rivers, lakes, and coastal areas that are part of it. Although many other locations claim this name, it is undeniable that the city is the lightning capital of the world.

The neighboring suburbs like Braamfontein and Doornfontein are also the places to discover more of the cultural events. Despite the very rich state of the whole city, there are also districts that remain poor like the Rosebank, Sandton, Alexandra and Diepskloot, in which their poverty state is blames with some political issues. Overall, the whole Johannesburg is a very friendly city with the kind people dwelling on it. If you want to know the sobering remembrance of the dark past of the city, you may go to the Apartheid Museum, where they have displayed the highlights of their history. You could witness how they have illustrated the rise and fall of the South Africa, which the proofs are still visible in its current state.
