(French: Bruxelles, Dutch: Brussel)
First off, you should know that Brussels refers to more than a capital city of Belgium, but also the 19 municipalities that surround the city core. Since Belgium is a divided country in a certain sense, this place is unofficially part of both regions, the French Community of Belgium and the Flemish Community, but is separate from the region of Flanders,in which it forms an enclave, or Wallonia. Brussels is increasingly becoming multilingual with increasing numbers of migrants, but its two main languages are French and Flemish. Brussels has transformed from being almost entirely Dutch-speaking, to being a multilingual city with French, specifically Belgian French, as the majority language and lingua franca.
Belgium has an area of 30,528 square kilometers,with 16,844 square kilometers for Wallonia, 13,522 square kilometers for Flanders and 161 square kilometres for the Brussels Capital Region.
The language division is in the same way reflected in the regional division of the country of Belgium.
As we have already mentioned, Brussels is a bilingual region, but other than that, the line that separates the North of Belgium, the Dutch-speaking area, and the South, larger, French-speaking region, is clear and almost precisely cuts through the half of the map. However, this is not the end of language ambiguity, as there is a small region in the Eastern part of the country, towards the German border, where German is the dominant tongue. Geographically looking, that is a part of Wallonia, a province in the Southeast.
