Yes, I tried Vaduz and Warsaw before I realised my missing one was Madrid.

Wouldn't have even given the Baltic States a thought, cos they're small, and well, Baltic. Interesting

I was 100% sure that Vaduz must be on the list, because I guessed Vienna and Bern. How far is it from the sea?

It is around 281 km away from the Venetian Lagoon. Indeed it's about the same latitude as Bern, but the Adriatic Sea extends further north than the Ligurian Sea, which is closest to Bern!

That makes sense. I was puzzled by Vaduz not being on as well.

Shouldn't it be fArthest? Further is to continue . . . he added further to his comments, but maybe he should have gone farther (distance)

I remember learning that "further" is suitable for both meanings, whereas "farther" refers specifically to distance. I'm not a native speaker though, so I can't say for sure.

My understanding is that further can be used anywhere farther is used, but not the other way around. Farther has some limitations. It cannot be used as a verb, as in to further your education. It also cannot be used as a synonym for additional or additionally. You wouldn't ask for farther assistance. You also wouldn't say farthermore. You could, however, travel either further or farther into space or time. The name of the quiz is fine.

That's really interesting to learn! I never knew the difference between the two.

I'm British and I would never use farther/farthest. Further is fine. Those previous comments look correct to me but I'm not sure if it is a difference between British/American English or just a convention.

It would be nice if the description included which bodies of water are classified as "the sea.",

The author would be most kind to tell me which sea does he think is 293km from Belgrade and 418km from Budapest.
