I think there's a glitch. I kept typing Chisinau but it wouldn't accept it for some reason? Anyone else got that too?

Aug 28, 2018
It's possible, since we recently updated the code for this quiz. However, when I type Chisinau it works fine.

Yea, I had the same problem on both this quiz and the World Capitals Quiz. I've completed these quizzes multiple times so knew CHISINAU was right so kept typing it in, sometimes slowly in case it would then accept it!

I copied and pasted the answer from the World Capitals Quiz onto this one (when Chisinau wasn't accepted) and it works but the answer has the special 's' and 'a' characters - Chișinău. I am unable to type those characters

Yes me too. I thought I must have the wrong spelling but I triued several times. Finally I googled it and when I copied and pasted it in with the bits under and over the letters (I know there are technical terms for those but I'm not sure what they are) then it was accepted. But I can't type those on my keyboard.

Still works fine for me. What browser are people using? I'm having a hard time figuring out why it wouldn't work. Maybe if you're on a mobile device it's being corrected to a misspelling.

And now it's fixed. The problem was caused by IE's inability to capitalize ș.

Please just allow one standard spelling. It really grates to spell Tallinn correctly for it to be accepted with one n, and then my next answer gets an n stuck on the front. Surely it isn't too much to ask for people to learn how to spell these places correctly with either the way the country itself spells it, or the UN accepted spelling?

Oct 14, 2023
Or just look at the answer box before you type in the next one to make sure that you're not accidentally putting an n in front of it? Just a suggestion :)

I would like to point out that there is no de jure capital of Switzerland, though since Bern is the de facto capital and "federal city", it makes sense to use it for these quizzes. I am just trying to raise people's attentions.

Although Kiev is still in common use, I believe it is now more common to use Kyiv for Ukraine's capital.

Finally, after mastering the test of lining up country to list of capital names. I moved onto this much harder one. The map one is hard to, as never mastered exactly where the smaller countries are so gonna practice that one now.

Overall isn't terribly hard, I mean half of them are pretty easy that anyone should just know from movies. Ones like Budapest, Bucharest, Belgrade, and Prague heard of so just took a minute to memorize their country. Some I just knew mostly cause have friends or celebrities I know from Sofia, Pristina, Sarajevo and Dublin.

Ones that gave me the most difficulty were Zagreb, Tirana, Podgorica, Vilnius, Ljubljana and Vaduz. As had no connection to them and had hard time remembering how to spell and which country they belong to.

Surprisingly Reykjavik and Chisinau were easy to remember, only took like 2 tries til knew like Skopje, Riga, Tallin and Velleta.

The United Kingdom is a state made up of four countries England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. London is the capital city of England. Cardiff is the capital city of Wales. Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland. Belfast is the capital city of Northern Ireland.

Please can the author of this quiz just change the country option of the United Kingdom to England to make it correct. Alternatively add all of the countries and their capital cities that make up the United Kingdom. (as above)

All you have to do is go on Wikipedia to see that London is labelled as the capital city. The quizmaster is right. If you don't like it, make your own quiz.

Wikipedia is 100% accurate all the time, I mean you can't go and make edits.

I was only stating facts, look at other comments saying a similar thing.

"Other comments" yeah, one other person who said the same thing, lol. Someone doesn't seem to understand the difference between singular and plural :)

Wikipedia's not the only source for this, either. You can look anywhere and see that it's the capital city of London and the UK as a sovereign country. I'm just stating facts :)
