Bloemfontein History

Bloemfontein was a little British Military outpost and residency in 1846 and was once the capital of the Boer Republic of the Orange Free state.  The discovery of goldfields and the Orange River Project helped grow the economy.

The city also has a rich history that includes the founding of the ANC in 1912, and the founding of the National Party in 1914.

About Bloemfontein

Bloemfontein Population

At the 2001 census, the Bloemfontein (Mangaung) Metropolitan Municipality had a population of  just under 2 million nine hundred thousand residents. By 2011 there were more than three and a half million people living in Mangaung.

Bloemfontein, popularly and poetically known as the ‘city of roses’,  is the trade and administrative hub of the province, and boasts a university, the provincial government, large military facilities and the High Court of South Africa. Bloemfontein is the judiciary capital of South Africa.

Bloem=Flowers, fontein= fountain, so the name means flowering fountain, flower spring, or something to that effect.

Most notable buildings: First and Fourth Raadsaal, or republican parliament building, Old Residency (home of Boer republican presidents), Classical Appeal Court, and new Bloemfontein Opera House.

Get a view from Naval Hill and visit the Lamont Hussey Observatory, and the National Women’s Memorial War Museum of Boer Republics.

Bloemfontein has a National Airport.
