The Franz Ferdinand clue is somewhat confusing when combined with Winter Olympic host. Ferdinand was the Archduke of Austria, and the only Austrian city to host the winter Olympics was Innsbruck.

There are several quizzes where Myanmar is still called Burma. In that spirit I think it'd be fair to accept "Bombay" for Mumbai as well?

"Hostage syndrome" is a bit of a mean clue for Stockholm. Can you think of a nicer one? Greta Garbo; 1912 Olympics; Drottningholm Palace; Djurgården; Stockholm City Museum...

It'd be a bit ridiculous to put 'Stockholm City Museum' as a clue. Wouldn't that make it blatantly obvious? If not, it would make people think it WASN'T Stockholm. I think the clue is fine as is.

Okay as for Warsaw Jewish Ghetto doesn't exist any more and was created by nazis. Also Ghetto wasn't only "Warsaw" thing cause those existed all around countries that were under nazi occupation. Might as well change to -Royal Castle-Vistula River-1944-Łazienkowski Palace

These are just clues by association... you're inferring a lot about the clues that is not stated. Carthage is still a city and not the same one as Tunis... but... it helps you get the answer anyway.

Living in Melbourne I find it tragic and sad that one of the clues is 'Neighbours'(Sound of a gunshot offstage as the main protagonist kills himself). So much amazing culture, music, theatre and comedy has come out of Melbourne(just off the top of my head: Paul Kelly, Nick Cave, TISM, The Late Show, Hollowmen,( all those guys Tom Gleisner, Rob Sitch, Santo Cilauro, Glen Robbins); amazing classical guitarist like the Grigoryan brothers and John Williams; The Living End, John Safran...if I had more time...) So sad that the clue is lamestream 'Neighbours'(No! Put the gun away don't do it!). And I don't think there are really that many 'cricket grounds' in Melbourne, no more than any other city in Australia. There is just the one cricket ground however, with a crowd capacity of 100,000, which is exceptional. Also, If you can't spell Melbourne with an 'e' on the end you don't deserve to get it. Also, got them all with over a minute left. Why Neighbours why not Space Dogs or Idiot Box...

I'm fairly familiar with Melbourne and yet most of the people you listed aren't exactly famous for being Melburnians, and most are not going to be known by non-Australians. Whatever you think of Neighbours, it is well known (relatively) around the world.

Never heard of any of those people except Nick Cave and couldn't tell you a thing about him. Didn't know he was Australian. But I knew Neighbours was an Australian soap opera even though I've never seen it.

Neighbours if more successful and well known overseas than any of those other entities you mentioned. It's not a personal insult.

Love these quizzes. I agree that Danzig could be changed to a Gunther Grass related clue. Also, not very familiar with Melbourne so I pretty much had to guess it. May I suggest a clue related to the Australian Open or the F1 race?

Haha, I was a little confused by the "Danzig" clue since that's still the German name for Gdansk. I also have to admit that I only got Sarajevo because I stayed in a Franz Ferdinand themed hostel while visiting the city.

It's funny how I entered Danzig as the city for the "Baltic" clue, but it registered for the "Gdansk" one, where "Danzig" was given as a clue. So two things in one.
