Me too. Cracow should be an acceptable English language exonym, just like Munich and Havana.

I remember the highest mountain in Europe by associating it with a body joint which bends into the shape of a mountain. Therefore, I couldn't figure out why Mt. Nebrus wasn't accepted. Smacking self severely. Also thrown by the Monaco clue. I was trying to think of some smaller division of France located on the Riviera. I always think of Monaco as simply a country. I think I need another cup of coffee this morning. Good quiz to get me thinking early, though.

Went straight from one of the chain quizzes to this and got thrown for a fairly ridiculous amount of time by question number two. Eventually I realised the letters didn't need to match up.

Could Elsass for Alsace maybe be added as a type-in? That is the German name for it.

I don't know how you call it abroad, but in the original language it's just know as Cosa Nostra, without La

^ Agree. "La" Cosa Nostra ("The" Our Thing) doesn't make sense in the English translation. And I'm surprised that, given that these are English quizzes, as we are so often reminded, the term hasn't been translated into English.
