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.

Missed Glasgow too, but was convinced Britanny was correct; I never realised until the answers were revealed it has two Ts and one N!

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!

Fun quiz! Must say I was a bit disappointed that I tried Ski and it wasn't accepted. Didn't think I'd have to write Skiing so I thought maybe I just don't know what makes those cities famous.

Hey! Slightly nitpicky, but would you consider changing the Cologne question to "what German city gave its name to a type of fragrance", rather than "shares its name"? I feel that, as formulated, the question implies either a coincidence, or an unknown precedence, whereas it is in fact very clear that the fragrance (invented in Cologne in 1701), was named after the town, which has existed since Roman times. I feel that, worded like this, the question would prompt more people to learn about the origins of "Kölnisch Wasser", which some might find interesting. Many thanks!
