St. Athanasios Greek Orthodox Church

An, as yet, unexplained phenomenon occurs in one of the windows in this stately church each day as the sun is setting. The image resembling the crucifixion of Christ appears in only one of the windows, although it is of the same hue, consistency and construction as all the others. To date, no chemical or physical explanation has been found, and the occurrence is widely accepted as a form of stigmata. The window is of hammered, amber glass and grants an amazingly clear picture of the scenes at Golgotha. For visits, phone and arrange details.


With the frequently vaunted claim of making more millionaires than anyone else, this casino is well patronized by locals and tourists alike. A full house of slot machines, Blackjack, Roulette, Poker and Crap tables, with lots more besides, will cater for most tastes. The food on offer is always good, and staff members are close at hand to assist customers. Open, for all intents and purposes, all day every day, the casino is conveniently located next to a retail shopping complex, a gym facility as well as cinemas and coffee shops.

The National Children's Theater

An early Twentieth Century house takes your children back in time, to watch (mostly) kids' Classic plays. You can also see every room decorated with old sets, costumes and pictures both photographic and impressionistic. The National Children's Theater is run by an award-winning executive director. About 120 patrons can occupy the theater on floor-mats or chairs, the latter if you're over a certain age. Casts are sent out, too, if a theater loving school can't afford its own journey. This is sheer entertainment, as well as educational theater. There are also interactive theater workshops if your kid hankers after being either a professional walk-on or a Star. Call ahead for hours.

Nelson Mandela Square

Formerly known as Sandton Square, this hub of city life in Johannesburg was renamed Nelson Mandela Square in 2004 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the birth of South Africa's democracy. Also the home of the Nelson Mandela statue, which was unveiled when the square was renamed, the square serves not only as a tribute to the famed president's historic efforts to bring peace to the nation, but also a focal point where visitors and locals alike can contemplate the country's turbulent past. An Italian-style piazza full of shops, restaurants, and galleries, located near world-class hotels and the city's financial district, this is a must-see for any visitor to Johannesburg.

Apartheid Museum

The Apartheid Museum best reflects the sordid history of South Africa's apartheid days. Under the able guidance of Nelson Mandela, the country has strongly braved the rough weathers of racial discrimination, and this museum stands as a reminder of those horrifying stories and experiences. Photographs, film footage and artifacts displayed in the 22 exhibition areas will take one through an epic journey of a nation's struggle for the sake of humanity. So if you are in Johannesburg and you haven't been to this place, you are missing an opportunity to gain insight into events that are an integral part of South Africa's history.

Arts On Main

Art On Main is an art gallery that displays a number of very interesting art pieces. The creative space does more than display artwork. Artists congregate to discuss and share ideas, opinions, and thoughts, while an outdoor cinema screens film and a rooftop bar let artists, as well as customers, relax over a drink. They also have a reading room, art supplies, and bookstore and even host music concerts. Do call ahead for more details about the artists and more.
