Cape Town is a coastal city in South Africa. It is the second-most populous urban area in South Africa after Johannesburg.
It is also the capital and primate city of the Western Cape province. As the seat of the Parliament of South Africa,
it is also the legislative capital of the country. It forms part of the City of Cape Town metropolitan municipality.

The city is famous for its harbour, for its natural setting in the Cape Floristic Region, and for such well-known landmarks
as Table Mountain and Cape Point. As of 2014, it is the 10th most populous city in Africa and home to 64% of the Western Cape's
population. It is one of the most multicultural cities in the world, reflecting its role as a major destination for immigrants and
expatriates to South Africa. The city was named the World Design Capital for 2014 by the International Council of Societies of Industrial
Design. In 2014, Cape Town was named the best place in the world to visit by both the American New York Times and the British Daily Telegraph.

Located on the shore of Table Bay, Cape Town, as the oldest urban area in South Africa, was first developed by the Dutch East India Company
as a victualling (supply) station for Dutch ships sailing to East Africa, India, and the Far East. Jan van Riebeeck's arrival on 6 April 1652
established the first permanent European settlement in South Africa. Cape Town quickly outgrew its original purpose as the first European outpost
at the Castle of Good Hope, becoming the economic and cultural hub of the Cape Colony. Until the Witwatersrand Gold Rush and the development of
Johannesburg, Cape Town was the largest city in South Africa
