The one about cities ending in W is a great question. Suddenly have to think about cities in a new way. Tricky, but not impossible.

Crud. You are correct. I added Krakow. I also added the caveat (by metro area) so that I wouldn't have to add Wroclaw as well.

I only got Warsaw out of the cities that end in W... because I read it 'cities that start with W'. That sort of thing happens when you really need sleep but decide to come to JetPunk instead.

I love how some sources are set on Mount Elbrus as the tallest mountain in Europe yet others say it's Mount Blanc which I got taught in school. Very marginal.

we learned that in English speaking countries Mount Elbrus is usually considered to be the highest peak while in many others, my country (Czech Republic) included, we tend to think of Mont Blanc as the tallest mountain. But on this site it is always Elbrus..

Realised 'Suomi' was one of the Scandinavian countries with 10 seconds left, typed as fast as I could and managed to guess the first two and get halfway through the last one... which of course turned out to be the right answer. Darn you Jetpunk!

Cool quiz ! I fidnt get glasgow and basel, felt pretty silly not thinking of glasgow. But oddly i wasnt the only one, at all...! I wonder why people failed to think of it. Maybe focussing on eastern europe?
