The region of Brussels-Capital, more commonly known as Brussels, is one of the three regions that make up Belgium. It’s the only bilingual region in Belgium. In comparison to most European regions, Brussels is quite small with only 161 km² (about 1.6 times the inner city of Paris). Looking at the population numbers, it’s quite comparable to a province, of which the region has inherited some entitlements.
The Brussels’ government oversees 19 municipalities, the most notable of which is Brussels, the capital of Belgium. Others include Ixelles, Uccle, Etterbeek and so on.
Concerning real estate prices, Brussels is one of the most expensive areas in Belgium.
In the area you’ll find a wide variety of cultural hotspots, including more than 100 museums to visit ranging from the Magritte museum to the beer museum! You can also enjoy the Atomium or wander around the city to enjoy its’ beautiful Art Nouveau. Some 15 garden cities, built in between the two World Wars, can provide a nice day out in Brussels as well!
