The name Bloemfontein means a “fountain of flowers”. It is then not surprising that residents of this city affectionately call it the City of Roses. The reason behind this name is that this type of flower grows very well here. This city is significant for two reasons; it is the provincial capital of the province of the Free State, while also being the seat of the South African Supreme Court of Appeal. This city is also famous for its military statues inspired by the heroes of the Anglo-Boer War. It sits on the main thoroughfare in South Africa, the N1, spanning all the way from Beitbridge to Cape Town.
