Cape Town (Afrikaans; Kaapstad, Xhosa pronunciation: 'ka:pstat]) is South Africa's capital city and the seat of South Africa's Parliament. It is also the country's legislative capital. It is the country's oldest and second-largest city (after Johannesburg). It is commonly known as the Mother City [7], and it is also part of the City of Cape Town metropolitan area. Gauteng, in Pretoria (the executive capital) and Bloemfontein (the judicial capital), are the other capitals. [9]

Globalization and World Cities Research Network has ranked Cape Town as a Beta World City. [10] The city's harbour is well-known, as well as its natural setting in Cape Floristic Region and landmarks like Table Mountain and Cape Point. 66% of the Western Cape population resides in Cape Town. [11] Cape Town was named by The New York Times[12] as the most desirable place to visit in 2014 by The Daily Telegraph. [13]

It is located on Table Bay in Cape Town and is the oldest urban area of the Western Cape. The Dutch East India Company (VOC), which developed it as a supply point for Dutch ships sailing to East Africa, India and the Far East, established it. Jan van Riebeeck arrived in South Africa on April 6, 1652 to establish the VOC Cape Colony. This was the first permanent European settlement. Cape Town has become the cultural and economic center of the Cape Colony, having outlived its original purpose of being the Castle of Good Hope's first European outpost. Cape Town was South Africa's largest city until the Witwatersrand Gold Rush, and the development Johannesburg.
