C'mon! Sochi is quite easy to remember! At least not as difficult as Novorsibirsk, Chelyabinsk, Nizhny Novgorod or some other russian cities.

Novosibirsk is actually pretty easy; it's the largest city in Siberia.

It's definitely a -ch sound so Why on the earth It would be Sotsi? I really don't understand some of you guys typing mistakes.

It's "Bronx". The Bronx is a misnomer.

I've always seen the Czech spelling of Prague as Praja, but maybe I'm crazy.

I agree that is how they spell it it is Praja I have been there. This is the second quiz I have taken by this person and they do not correct anything but put nasty comments on others' quizzes. It is also The Bronx not "Bronx." Reference:I was born in Manhattan no one says I am going to "Bronx" You would sound unrefined.

Yeah five letters is right. But who remembers Idaho except for me? It's the middle of nowhere. I actually went there to Sun Valley for a wedding when I was 15 and on the plane they served beef jerky and I never knew that beef jerky wasn't a chew toy or food for dogs. LOL!

Paris (from June 1944 onwards) and Tours (briefly in 1940) were also 5-letter French capitals in World War 2.

There are actually quite a few former capitals of Japan whose English names have 5 letters: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capital_of_Japan. Other than the currently accepted answer, the most well-known are probably Asuka, Osaka, and Heian.

Though I will readily admit that anyone who has heard of these (especially Heian) has probably also heard of the currently accepted answer ;)

Please change 'Ayers rock' to 'Ayers Rock' as it is a proper noun.

I didn't get Idaho despite living in the US XD I was just thinking of states on the coast and not landlocked ones.
