Brussels is the capital of Belgium and the administrative centre of the European Union. This has earned the city the title of the Capital of Europe.
The vibrant atmosphere of Brussels is further enhanced by picturesque medieval streets, lively squares, beautiful boulevards, impressive monuments, spacious parks, cosy cafés, interesting restaurants and an active cultural life.
Belgium has only 10 million inhabitants. One million of them live in Brussels. While in 1960 7.3% of the Brussels population was foreign, today the figure has risen to 56.5%. In 1991 28.5% of the Brussels residents held a foreign nationality and 4.5% were “new” Belgians. By 2020 75% of the Brussels population will be of non-Belgian origin.
