Belgium is divided into three main regions: Brussels Capital, Flanders and Wallonia, roughly corresponding to an ethnic division into the Dutch-speaking Flemings and French-speaking Walloons, the 70,000 residents of the eastern German cantons, and the bilingual capital of Brussels.
Belgium has three main geographical regions: flat coastal plains in the northwest, crossed by navigable rivers and canals; a rolling country of hills and valleys rising gradually toward the east in the central areas; and the rugged mountains, rivers and gorges of the Ardennes Forest in the southeast of the country.
The most important urban areas in Belgium include Brussels, the capital city, Antwerp, the major port in Belgium, Bruges, Charleroi, Ghent and Liège.
The Flemish region forms the northern part of Belgium, in which three seaports are located: Antwerp, Ghent and Zeebrugge. The Walloon region is situated in the south of Belgium; Liège and Charleroi are its major cities. Industry is concentrated mainly in the populous Flemish area in the north.
