No K in the Romance languages (mostly), definitely restricts the area. Still enjoyed this quiz a lot. Only got 9.

The hint for Karelia could also be 'region split between Finland and Russia' since the regions known as South and North Karelia belong to Finland while the Republic of Karelia is in Russia. But it works this way, too.

I'd call it a Finnish region occupied by Russia. Or a region Finland ceded to Russia in WWII.

Great quiz, thank you. It was a challenge, as you say, but I think it's good that there are a mix of difficulty levels on the site and that one does an occasional quiz that makes you think a bit more.

That was weird. I seriously got the Croatian island by typing in the first three consonant combination that started with K that came to mind. It was right. I think my mouth dropped open. lol

Salut, Karelia is not exactly a region, it's a republic. That's why I didn't understand why Kola peninsula doesn't work. That's more a region, a natural region. Bon quiz cela dit !

Karelia isn't a republic any more than America is the United States. Yes, there is a Karelian Republic in Russia but we Finns get a little irritated if you claim the whole region's the republic.

The quiz asks for the Russian region though, and that is correctly called the Republic of Karelia.

Well, then, Karelia must be a republic because America is the United States.(Not North America, not South America, not Central America, not "The Americas", but just plain America is us.)

Konigsberg was a city in East Prussia until after the Second World War when the Soviets conquered it and incorporated it into the RSFSR. It was renamed Kaliningrad after Kalinin, one of Stalin's various hangers-on.

Kingston upon Hull confused the CRAP out of me. I grew up in a Canadian city called Kingston, likewise there's a Canadian city called Hull that I've also been to (In Quebec right on the border of Ontario. Lots of Ottawa-area kids go there to drink when they're still not old enough at home). Mash the two together and I just went "Wha? Dammit, can North America have ANY original place names?!?!?!?"
