Johannesburg (/dZoU’haenIsbe.rg/ joh–HAN-iss–burg, US also /–’ha:n–/ -HAHN–, Afrikaans pronunciation: [[email protected][email protected]]); Zulu and Xhosa eGoli [e’go:li]), also known as Jozi, Joburg or \"The City of Gold\", is South Africa's largest city. It is also a megacity[11] and is an urban area. [12] According to Demographia, the Johannesburg-Pretoria urban area (combined because of strong transport links that make commuting feasible) is the 26th-largest in the world, with 14,167,000 inhabitants. [13] It's the capital of Gauteng and the largest city in the province. This is South Africa's wealthiest province. Johannesburg is home to the Constitutional Court. It is South Africa's highest court. Johannesburg is home to most of the top South African banks and companies. It is situated in the Witwatersrand hills, which are rich in minerals. The city is also the center of large-scale diamond and gold trade. It hosted the final of FIFA World Cup 2010's official tournament.

After the discovery of gold in an old farm, the city was founded in 1886. The Witwatersrand's large gold deposit [16] made it possible for the city to grow to 100,000 people in ten years.
