The vast majority of the world's diplomatic administration within Israel is within Tel Aviv, the defacto capital.
If Jerusalem is treated as the capital of Israel then any number of unrecognised or low recognition sovereignty movements around the world should be listed here too, as their own belief of their sovereignty holds as much weight as Israel's declaration of Jerusalem as their capital.
(Unlike quizzes like: name the 20 countries with the most rainfall, too much time there can result in just people listing all the countries untill they get the correct 20 answers)
Capital Cities of different things Quiz
For whatever reason my brain died trying to remember Maputo and Lilongwe. Tomorrow I'll try again. Had about 2 minutes to remember these two and just couldnt... feelsbadman
Also, Riyad is accepted without the H (Riyadh) and so Vientian without the E (Vientiane). I think this was a bad update.
They also claim to have a capital city despite what other countries say, and have just as many other countries agreeing with them as Israel does for Jerusalem.
You see my point? You're applying different rules to the exact same situation.
And I have tried so many times to get this, and each time is a no go.
That's quite a few name changes in the past few months, isn't it? First Swaziland and Macedonia change their names a little, then Burundi relocates its capital, then this happens.
However, I'd like to suggest something for the interesting facts category. The former name the city had since 1998, Astana, literally means "capital city" in Kazakh.
I decided from now on I will remember it by thinking of "dumb lure" which is nearly what the first part is backwards, if if wasnt for the "silent b" in dumb.
But... could you or someone possibly do a quiz that has...1. an empty map at the start and 2. you need both country and capital together to make the country show...???
I love jetpunk!
But why is São Tomé & Principe on Africa's column?
Ah san marino is a better candidate :)
I thought it was Bujumbura.
Though the downside with that is... the ones that never get mentioned in any quizzes haha. I think most of the ones I didnt get fall in that category, I think there are atleast 10 more that I missed that I should ve gotten or atleast look familiar enough. I think about 30 you hardly see on any quiz.
anyways, i also though more people knew ngerulmud...
But Colombo doesn't work here.
If you suggested Pòtoprens I'd agree.
When I search for "World Capitals - Hard Version" I got no result.
(first try), AND BRAZZAVILLE
