The Only Country With Three Capitals In The World
As you know, 99% of the countries in the world have only one capital, and several have two capitals. This is the case with South Korea, which has two capitals, Seoul and Sejong. Especially few countries have three capitals.
I know only one country, and this country is a moderately developed country, but it has three capitals. This is rare in the world. This country is a bit different.
This country is South Africa, which is located in the southernmost part of Africa.
South Africa has a reputation as a “Rainbow country”, and is the second-largest economy in Africa. Its economic development is relatively stable in African countries.
Minerals are the main source of South Africa’s economy. The production of gold and diamonds all accounts for the first place in the world. The people have a very high stanstan of living, but the gap between the rich and the poor is quite serious.
Why does South Africa have so many capitals?
There is a saying here that 100 years ago, there were four countries in South Africa. Each country had its own capital. In 1910, the British merged these countries into South Africa. However, there was no consensus on where the capital should be.
Finally, a compromise was reached, and each authority was located in a different city. This is a great joy.
Pretoria is located in the north of Gauteng Province, South Africa, founded in 1855. It is the administrative capital of South Africa, where the presidential palace and embassies of various countries are located.
Pretoria is only 40 minutes drive from Johannesburg, the largest city in South Africa. It is a beautiful garden city. Almost all the streets are white, especially a few black people. It is a European city.
Bloemfontein is located in the central part of South Africa, the geographical center of the country and the judicial capital of South Africa, where the Supreme Court is located.
Bloemfontein is one of the most white concentrated cities in South Africa, with a good foundation of food industry. It is the distribution center of agricultural products in the central region of South Africa. Because of its low crime rate, Bloemfontein is known as the most livable city in South Africa.
Cape Town is located on the coast of the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa. Because of its beautiful natural and geographical environment, it is known as the most beautiful coastal city in South Africa.
It is also the legislative capital of South Africa, where the South African Parliament and some government agencies are located.
Cape Town is the first city that white people in Europe set up in South Africa, but now white people are not dominant, most of them are mixed race, followed by black people, and the third is white people.
In South Africa, the three powers are separated, and the power institutions are in different cities, rather than concentrated in the same city as most countries, which results in different cities handling affairs.
The administrative efficiency is certainly not high, perhaps only in South Africa. However, the scenery of South Africa is still good. If you go to South Africa, which city would you choose to go to first?
