I've been to Bangladesh (family living there). There are certainly plenty of problems with the country, but there are still some very beautiful parts, especially once you get outside the city.

Balkan is not even a peninsula.

"Balkans" is term created in 19th century to describe areas of Europe controlled by Ottomans.

To be fair to Lyngen, I don't think there is one universal definition of Balkan northern border. Is it from Terst to Oddesa or from Lezhe to Burgas? If someone told me it is from Lezhe to Thesaloniki, I wouldn't outright say he is wrong. And is the border a straight line? Or Danube river? Or the Balkan mountain range? Who knows.

I somehow typed the answer to the currency question accidentally while trying to remember the name of the island with no vowels in it. Lucky me I guess. Anyway, fun quiz! I'd love to visit Croatia some day.

I knew Dubrovnik from Game of Thrones, which is cool. Surprised so few got Diocletian easily one of the most influential emperors of rome.
