Actually, Manchester is usually reported as the second most important city of the UK, and lots of people think it's also the second largest by population. Sports, music, arts, economy, industry, university... Manchester is by far more famous and relevant abroad than Birmingham.

In football terms, yes, in all things that is rubbish, universities, arts, music, industry etc, but we have the media to blame for those opinions!

Whyshould more people remember Birmingham than Manchester? As a Turkish person I know that Birmingham's population is bigger than Manchester but Manchester is by far more popular anywhere around Europe(and probably world). Manchester is the birthplace of İndustrial Revolution, It has two of the most popular teams in Premier League and generally people hears it more than Birmingham

Agree with msnavarro - I deliberately didn't attempt Belfast, Edinburgh or Cardiff as they are 'capitals' in the UK. Some may disagree.....

Seriously, you both have a level over 70 and you don't know yet that Scotland and Northen Ireland are not considered as countries on Jetpunk?

Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia, Munich is the capital of Bavaria etc. I agree with Arp2600, hard to believe you haven't noticed so far that UK countries are just regions called countries, but not independent countries like all the others. Besides being very curious countries without parliament or government until relatively recently.

How did you 'RogerM' get to level 74 without knowing that 'Countries' on Jetpunk are 'Sovereign states', I can't believe it really and it smells like a born troublemaker to me.

Don't get sniffy - I know they aren't Jetpunk 'countries' but as stated I mistakenly didn't attempt them. Oh, I got to level 74 over many years and it equals my age. What a bunch of finger pointers.

Why? If anything it should be accepted in English and German which it is. Maybe if someone misspelled something but you're making up words now

They are the Anglicized versions of the German name used by Germans speakers using an English keyboard. No German with an German keyboard would spell it ue. Though purely speculation I would imagine that most German speakers under the age of 40 would write it without the e on an English keyboard anyway.

I agree. As a german, I never used Koeln or Muenchen. On Jetpunk, I usually use u instead of ü and so on.

I missed three istanbul, let's not comment on that one, marseille and hamburg. I done quite a lot of quizzes and cant remember seeing either of them. Maybe the quiz this one is based on is one of the few that mentions them.

Northern Ireland is included in the country of The United Kingdom / UK (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland). The single capital of The UK is London, and not Edinburgh, Cardiff or Belfast.
