Im pretty sure Istanbul is in european part of turkey so it probably has way higher muslim population than both paris and berlin. I think that needs to be fixed

But it's not the capital of Turkey. And, unlike Istanbul, no part of Ankara is in Europe.

Nice quiz! "Least precipitation" was the hardest for me. That was the only one where I had to resort to typing in capitals completely at random.

For me, it was most livable. Fortunately, Vienna was my third guess.

Fortunatelly, that one was the easiest for me, since I live in Copenhagen :D But the one with least precipitation I also had to think about

I didn't get that one because I still have no idea what the hell 'most livable' means.

Anybody else surprised that Monaco isn't the most expensive?

Or has the most millionaires.

Level 46
May 11, 2020
It's asking for the raw number of billionaires. Monaco probably has the highest % of billionaires, but has no chance in raw numbers.

There are many Muslims in Tirana, but it only makes up 60% of the population. Muslims make up of around 97% of population according to census in Pristina, and 80% population in Sarajevo are Bosniaks, which are predominantly Muslims.
