Cape Town is the "mother city" of the country - the first city in what became South Africa. 300 years old, it's not just the beautiful beaches and dramatic scenery that attracts. Here you find the country’s five most popular tourist attractions. Cape Town also houses the country's parliament, while the government and president reside in Pretoria. The fact that Cape Town is also the "gay capital" of South Africa certainly doesn't make it less interesting to visit.
