The city centre, sometimes known as "the pentagon", is surrounded by an inner ring road, the "small ring" (French: petite ceinture, Dutch: kleine ring ), a sequence of boulevards formally numbered R20 as its mentioned in Brussels road map. These Brussels roads were built upon the site of the second set of city walls following their demolition. Metro line 2 runs under much of these Brussels road.
