"There'll be bluebirds over the white cliffs of Dover..." The song is probably more famous than the place itself.

Level 63

Actually the Kremlin in Moscow is a citadel, containing the Presidential Palace, various historical churches, military and government buildings.

Not in 1945 though, and I'm not sure it constitutes a "major" city. It's tiny both in terms of population and area, and it doesn't even have an airport

I'll concede you the year discrepancy, but city of 157,000 and metro population of 430,000 = "tiny" ?

Compared to Dreseden's 540k/1.34M, I certainly wouldn't say "major."

Is this a trick question?

Same way that many, many other places can have capitals. Why wouldn't Bali have a capital?
