Bloemfontein is South Africa’s judicial capital and the capital of the Free State Province. The city lies almost in the centre of the country and is a regular layover for those travelling between Johannesburg and the coastal cities of Cape Town, Port Elizabeth and East London.
Typical of all cities, Bloemfontein has its share of schools, parks, business centres, contemporary malls, an efficient transport system and recreational facilities, however, much of the city’s historic architecture has been retained and a great deal of emphasis placed on greening the city.
Aside from the top legal minds resident in Bloemfontein, the city is also an academic hub with the country’s top-ranked school and one of the finest universities located here. It’s a cultured place where those who live here appreciate the sandstone buildings, the clean tree- and flower-lined streets and parks, and the reason why it’s called the City of Roses.
Bloemfontein is rugby country and Saturday afternoons grind to a standstill when the city’s cherished Cheetahs rugby team take to the field. Ask your agent to invite you to a live game or find a festive venue to join the locals watch a televised away game.
