    Cape Town is one of the rare cities in the world where mountains literally enter the Atlantic, creating a connection between land and the ocean, which affects all its inhabitants. Cape Town's hallmark, its recognizable symbol, is Table Mountain. Cape Town is considered the cultural center of South Africa. The city has many museums, art galleries and everything related to bohemia. This metropolitan city, stretching far beyond the historical center, prosperous facades and neighborhoods of millionaires, has its own slums (to see all aspects of the real life of the city, they also offer tours). Cape Town is often called the mother of all cities, because it was from here that a new history of southern Africa began with the arrival of the first Europeans to its shores. The first stone fort was built here, a colony was laid here, administrative administration was carried out from here.
