Soweto is a Johannesburg suburb, rich with South African history. This area, located south of Johannesburg, near the gold mines, was once a separate municipality, but is now part of the Johannesburg metropolitan area.

Soweto was the location of significant protests in 1976, carried on in response to the apartheid government's policy, which enforced education in Afrikaans rather than in English. During the protests, 23 people were killed on the first day, drawing worldwide attention to the area.

A Thriving Suburb

In addition, Metrorail has several stops in Soweto and travels into central Johannesburg. There are also restaurants and shops in Soweto, so there is no need to travel to Johannesburg for everything.
