Reputed to have grown at much the same rate as the major metropolis of Johannesburg, Welkom, South Africa’s youngest town - it received city status only in 1955 - is the hub of the Free State gold fields about 160 kilometers northeast of Bloemfontein. Directly translated from the Afrikaans or Dutch, Welkom means “welcome,” and the town emerged after the discovery of gold in the area. Ernest Oppenheimer, at that time the chairman of Anglo American, played a significant role in its development. Welkom has also earned itself the reputation of being a “city within a garden” due to the number of parks and cleverly designed gardens that lend Welkom an extraordinary number of shady trees and pretty surrounds, making it a more than welcome place to visit.
