A bit more leeway or Andorra la Vella would be nice. I tried Andorra vella and Andorra da vella without any luck

No other quizzes I've taken give any latitude on the capital names - all you have to do is remember "La Vella". Way easier than say... Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte or Bandar Seri Begawan:)

So you accept "The City" as an answer... Very accurate indeed ;).

"The old" (city) literally. Quite common on european names

I don´t think the coordinates you have given are latitudes... latitudes are north or south, and not west or east. Reykjavik´s latitude for example is 64°09' N. ;)

I've always found that if you want to remember ("want" being the operative word) how to spell a difficult word/name, pronounce it the way it appears. Something like rake-JAV-ick would get you close, and all you'd have to remember is that the first syllable starts with "reyk" not "rayk". It's worked for me for years, especially with words like REN-dez-vowss (rendezvous) or KIRE-gizz-stan (Kyrgyzstan...just remember it's all y's to start) or yas-triz-ZEMSKI (Carl Yastrzemski). First time I ever saw the word yarmulke, I had no idea what word I was looking at. Now, in my head I say yar-MULL-key, and can spell it without a hitch.

This site accepts Delhi for New Delhi, so it maybe should accept Andorra for Andorra la Vella.

While I agree that Andorra should be accepted for Andorra la Vella, this isn't really the same thing.

It's much closer to Kuwait, New York, Guatemala, etc. being acceptable without the extraneous "City"

Of course, New York should always be accepted as such. City is NOT part of its name.

All three of us have lived close to New York and can easily argue over this, but kalbahamut still holds a point.

I agree with kalbahamut's point but thought perhaps that Vatican City would make a better example than New York.

Since New York is both a city and a State, it is necessary to write the City (or NYC) when you mean the city of New York. Here we usually just write NYC (city) or NYS (state) to differentiate between the two if the meaning isn't clear from the context.

You don't accept Andorra for Andorra? Never heard of that.
