Kinshasa (formerly Leopoldville (French: Léopoldville or Dutch: Leopoldstad) is the capital and the largest city of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It is located on the Congo River. Once a site of fishing villages, Kinshasa is now an urban area with a 2014 population of over 11 million. It faces the capital of the neighbouring Republic of Congo, Brazzaville, which can be seen in the distance across the wide Congo River. Kinshasa is the third largest urban area in Africa after Cairo and Lagos.
