I don't subscribe to the "possession is 9/10ths of the law" philosophy; if you steal my car, it's still *my* car – you just happened to steal it. Therefore, I like how this clue is worded.

Thanks for your thanks on the French version - you'll see that Hagia Sophia and Yekaterinburg didn't survive in translation, because the French names Sainte-Sophie and Iekaterinbourg don't start with H or Y!!!

Welcome! Do you speak French or are you using a translator? (if the latter, it isn't even noticeable, which is good!)

How do the same % of people get the 'Spanish and Portuguese peninsula' and 'Palace of the Italian President' questions? I would have thought the peninsula would be far more well known than some italian palace?

I am AMAZED that many people know the Q answer. I have never even heard of it. I just assumed there was an obvious type in that people would know it by that i'd missed. I'm genuinely staggered as many people know it as know a city in Switzerland that starts with Z!!

This befuddles me too, as the only type-in is Quirinal, along with some misspellings.

I didn't even have a guess for that one. No clue, whatsoever.

I had never previously heard of that palace but the Q was a bit of a clue - I started thinking of the hills of Rome and know one of them starts with a Q and that was it. It was a bit of a wild stab in the dark, but it paid off.

How many more years until there is absolutely no question that Ukraine no longer owns Crimea... It's a fait accompli, whether right or wrong it's already a reality that Russia owns it. If we keep going by this logic then most countries would belong to someone else.

One thing: The Sea of Marmara could also work, as it separates European Turkey and Asian Turkey.

How about "catalunya" and "cataluna" for "catalonia" taking the spanish/catalan spellings?

Somehow randomly guessed Xanthi. Don't even know how the name came to mind, and I don't remember seeing it anywhere, but I just randomly typed it in, and voila!

Wales is hardly a fourth of the UK - neither in land area nor population - that's why.

Quite impressed that I got Yekaterinburg and Valletta, but then again I didn't get Jutland somehow... Very good quiz though!

Technically Wales is not one-fourth of the UK, as it doesn't cover a fourth of the UK's land area. Rather it is one of four regions of the UK.

I thought Xanthi would be better known, they have a carnival every year.
