I had to measure it myself. Just missed Croatia and kept trying Czechia, Cameroon and Cape Verde.

Croatia is ~890 km away from a cape in Catalonia.

Czechia is 1000 km away from the most northeastern part os Spain.

Cape Verde is at least 1360 km away from the Hierro island in the Canaries. And...

Cameroon is 3370 km away from Fuerteventura

Yeah, my attempt at Cote D'Ivoire is slightly less terrible than Cameroon, but still not quite as close as Croatia (only a few hundred miles out)

How can Liechtenstein be closer than Luxembourg? - You have to virtually climb over Luxembourg to get to Belgium and the Netherlands.

Liechtenstein borders neither Belgium or the Netherlands. It's further south so not sure where the confusion would lie.

divantilya is not talking about if Liechtenstein neighbors Belgium or the Netherlands, but why Luxembourg isn't on this quiz due to it being closer to Spain than the Netherlands, which are on this list for N. So why isn't Luxembourg on the list instead of Liechtenstein? That is I think what divantilya is trying to know...

Thank you, Quaintaene. That was my point exactly. The Netherlands and Belgium ARE on the quiz. Therefore, my question was "why wasn't Luxembourg the "L" choice, rather than Liechtenstein as Luxembourg is immediately south of Belgium.

I think that Spain just goes farther east than north, making it closer to Liechtenstein.

I mean just look at a map - Liechtenstein is quite obviously closer to Spain than Luxembourg is.

Belgium and the Netherlands are on here because there are no intervening countries beginning with B or N. The fact that you have to "climb over" Luxembourg to get to Belgium has nothing whatsoever to do with the fact that Liechtenstein is closer.

Liechtenstein isnt beyond the netherlands, or between belgium and the netherlands, it is in a completely different direction between switzerland and austria.

Why isn't Algeria there? It's so close to Spain, just over the sea. Why should the fact, that there is anothet country starting with A closer, mean anything? Zambia is also so far away and still on the quiz.

Too easy to miss the obvious sometimes. I tried Algeria and Austria before I remembered Andorra, thankfully in time.

Previously (or currently) under the Serbian government. But with so much political division in that region, it's tricky to say if Kosovo is officially recognized by anyone yet.

Everytime I fail a quiz with one answer left is because of Taiwan or Kosovo. I'll never get used to this recognition...
