Bloemfontein

Bloemfontein (Fountain of Flowers), also known as Bloem, is one of South Africa’s three capital cities and the capital of the Free State province. It serves as the judicial capital of the country, along with legislative capital Cape Town and administrative capital Pretoria. Bloemfontein is the seventh-largest city in South Africa.

Bloemfontein is popularly and poetically known as “the city of roses”, for its abundance of these flowers and the annual rose festival held there. The city’s Sesotho name is Mangaung, meaning “place of cheetahs“.

Bloemfontein is located in central South Africa on the southern edge of the Highveld at an elevation of 1,400 metres (4,600 ft), bordering on the semi-arid region of the Karoo. The area is generally flat with occasional hills (koppies in Afrikaans) and the general vegetation is Highveld grassland. Bloemfontein experiences a semi-arid climate (Köppen: BSk), with hot summer days and cooler, dry winters, often with frosts.
