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.

In some countries it's spelled as Sotsi.

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

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

Perhaps you are thinking of Praia? The capital of Cape Verde? (Otherwise, praja with a j is amongst other thing an indian movie)

I did the whole quiz without realising that the answers had to 5 letters long. Not even been drinking. 20/21 didn't know Banff.

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.

Shouldn’t the “France in WW2 be changed to “Vichy France?” The capitals both have five letters. Although Vichy France is kind of a giveaway, so maybe something else?

Change it to capital of Occupied France

But it was the capital of the part of France that wasn't occupied.

Missing Vichy was one of the more frustrating experiences on this site. I am a major WW2 buff. I use the term 'Vichy France' all the time. I do not know why it slipped my mind in this instance. It's like forgetting how to ride a bike. Maybe I should get better sleep or something.
