Brazzaville, the Republic of the Congo’s capital and biggest city, is situated on the Congo River.

Kinshasa, the Democratic Republic of the Congo’s capital, is located across the Congo River from Brazzaville. Kinshasa-Brazzaville has a total population of around 12 million people, including Kinshasa (although significant political and infrastructure challenges prevent the two cities from functioning with any meaningful connection).

The capital of the Republic of Congo is home to more than a third of the country’s population and 40 percent of non-agricultural employment. It also serves as a financial and administrative hub.
