Bloemfontein is a name coined from the Dutch words “Bloem’s fountain”, meaning “fountain of flowers” or “blooming fountain”. The city is the capital of Free State province in South Africa and it is popularly referred to as The City of Roses — all thanks to the historical Rose Festival that was held for the first time here in 1976. This festival also called the “Mangaung Rose Festival”, and it is still celebrated every October in the City of Roses. South Africa’s Supreme Court of Appeals, Franklin Game Reserve, and the famous Sand du Plessis Theatre all call Bloemfontein their home.
