Cape Town is a city in South Africa. It has a densely populated urban area. In its population, it is second only to Johannesburg. It is the capital of the Western Cape province.
Cape Town is well known for several reasons. It is the legislative capital of the country. It is a part of the City of Cape Town metropolitan municipality. It is known for its harbour and natural surroundings in the Cape Floristic Region. There is of course the Table Mountain and Cape Point. As a multicultural place and its several unique attractions, it was regarded as the best place in the world to visit by New York Times and Telegraph.
Dutch East Indian Company initially developed Cape Town as a supply station for Dutch ships going towards East Africa, India and Far East. In 1652, when Jan Van Riebeeck arrived, it was the beginning of the European settlement in South Africa. While it started as the Castle of Good Hope, it evolved quickly and became the economic and cultural hub of the Cape Colony. Before the gold was discovered and Johannesburg developed, Cape Town was the biggest city in South Africa.

In history, human habitation dates back to 15000 to 20000 years ago. Bartolomeu Dia, the Portuguese explorer who was the first European to reach the area, named as "Cape of Storms". Johan II called "Cape of Good Hope" because of the prospects of the sea route to India that opened up. Vasco da Gama recounted seeing Cape of Good Hope in 1497. Later in the 16th century, Portuguese, French, Danish, Dutch and English used the route. Jan Van Riebeeck was on mission to establish a way-station for ships when he arrives in 1652.

This settlement started growing because it was not possible to find cheap labour. Slaves from Indonesia and Madagascar were imported to address the situation. They became the first generation of Cape Coloured communities. Under Van Riebeeck, a lot of agricultural change happened which affected the economy later. Grapes, cereals, ground nuts, potatoes, apples and citrus went on to shape the region later. While 17th, 18th and 19th centuries had its share of developments, political swings of fortunes but it went on to become the capital of Republic of South Africa.
