Capital of Belgium and of the province of Brabant.  In the growing regionalisation of Belgium, it was recognised as a region in 1980, though it was not until 1989 that a regional assembly was elected.

The region is called BRUXELLES-CAPITALE (Fr) or BRUSSEL-HOOFDSTAD (Flem) to distinguish it from the city, with which it is not co-terminous.
