Vilakazi Street

vilakazi

One of South Africa’s most famous streets – the only one in the world to have housed two Nobel Prize winners – has long been a must-see tourist attraction. Now, the Vilakazi Street precinct has become fully visitor-friendly, with public art, memorials and benches picking out its historical sites.

Following a major makeover, visitors to Johannesburg’s famous township can now experience Vilakazi Street as a place to stroll, to sit on one of numerous concrete benches or seats, to enjoy the newly planted trees, and to admire the new artworks.
