City of Brussels

The City of Brussels (French Bruxelles-Ville or Ville de Bruxelles, Dutch Stad Brussel) is the largest municipality of the Brussels-Capital Region, and the official capital of Belgium by law.Somewhat in the way that the City of London is different from London, the City of Brussels is different from Brussels. However, the expansion of the City was frozen at a later stage than the City of London, so that in addition to the old centre of Brussels, the towns of Haren, Laken (Dutch) or Laeken (French) and Neder-Over-Heembeek (Dutch and French) to the north, and the Louise Avenue and the Bois de la CambreTerkamerenbos to the south, are included.On 1 January 2006, the City of Brussels had a total population of 144,784. The total area is 32.61 km which gives a population density of 4,440 inhabitants per km. As of 2007, there were approximately 50,000 registered non-Belgians in Brussels City.[1]
