Johannesburg – The City of Gold

Johannesburg is the largest city in South Africa. It is also the world’s largest city not situated on or near water i.e. a river, a lake, or a coastline. Johannesburg is a major hub of gold and diamond trade, making it one of the wealthiest cities in the African continent.
