Cape Town, the legislative capital and second most populous city of South Africa and the provincial capital of the Western Cape, is also renowned as one of the world's most beautiful cities. South Africa's most popular tourist region covers almost 2,500 sq km (500 sq km of which is the city of Cape Town), has a relatively low population density, an agreeable Mediterranean climate and a flourishing economy with well-developed infrastructure. First inhabited about 12,000 years ago and colonized by Europeans in the 15th century, Cape Town underwent centuries of successive occupation before becoming today's democratic capital. Because of Cape Town's splendid natural surroundings and outdoor lifestyle, day trips to the countless natural sights can be enjoyed by everyone and visitors can participate in many activities - from surfing or whale and dolphin-watching to visiting the national parks, hiking (or taking a cable-car) up Table Mountain or embarking on a wine-tasting trip into the Cape Winelands. You'll find the nightlife and restaurants are excellent and this city boasts great shopping venues, beautiful architecture, friendly locals and above all stunning scenery.
