Area Info:

Welkom is the second largest town in the Free State province and one of South Africa’s youngest cities. Originally a large farm named ‘Welcome’ in Afrikaans, Welkom became a hub of activity during the early 1900s when gold was discovered. Today Welkom has a population of over 200,000 people, and an economy that has branched out from mining into industry and agriculture. The city is surrounded by Highveld grasslands, and is distinctive for its lack of mountainous and hilly terrain. There is only one hill near the city, the aptly named Koppie Alleen, or ‘lonely hill’. One of Welkom’s most distinctive features is the city’s excellent urban planning. The inner city has no traffic lights, and few stop streets, with traffic instead regulated by a highly effective system of traffic circles. Unlike many other South African cities where parking in town can be an expensive affair, there is also no metered parking in the central business district.
