I've excluded Gibraltar and Monaco, to make the quiz play better. I was slightly more generous with the definition of a coastal city (some of these are ever so slightly off the coast, yet still on water), although cities on rivers, which are far from the coast (ie. Hamburg) are not included.

Really don't think you can exclude Monaco. It is a sovereign state and certainly less obscure than some of the Balkan towns

Monaco is not the problem, but rather the remaining ~10 km of French coastline. Even if people were to guess Menton, France correctly there isn't a lot of room to place the city and have Monaco be visible (or vice versa).

Awesome quiz. Though it was harder than I expected. I kept guessing Arkhangelsk Murmansk and spend 1 minute on that.

Definitely deserves a feature

Thank you for the kind words! Murmansk is slightly bigger, but unfortunately it is a bit inland.

It's a good quiz. Because of the difficulty, it deserves more time. You seem to have missed off some sizeable cities - e.g. Bergen, Bordeaux (maybe estuaries don't count?), Bilbao, Porto, Cadiz, Malaga, Valencia, Nice, Genova, Venezia and Thessaloniki, for example.

You have to guess the largest city only among each country's coastline. Bordeaux is larger than Le Havre, but it is too far inland on the Loire? River. I don't mind increasing the time, the quiz is a fair bit difficult.

I think you should specify in the notes that you have to guess the largest city for each country's bit of coastline (it becomes obvious after a bit especially if you have taken the other quiz)

I'll try and explain it better in the description, it is a lot of information to put it all in the title. I always want to reduce confusion for people playing my quizzes.

Damn, I was sure Antwerp, Bordeaux, and Murmansk were coastal. This was a lot of fun though, thanks :)

You are very welcome! It is unfortunate that they aren't coastal, for difficulty's sake. I only realised Murmansk was inland when I was just about to place it on the map.

Great Quiz! pretty harder than previous version.

Yes, indeed. Cheers! :)

Super quiz! Including Gibraltar and Monaco would habe been Lisbon / Algeciras / Gibraltar / Barcelona / Marseille / Monaco / Menton. Don't think Algeciras and Menton would habe been easy to find :D

Thanks! I was going to include them (like I did on my countries version), but I thought better of it while searching for the cities for this quiz :)

I could've sworn Rome was coastal. Nice quiz!
Level 66

Thank you! Rome's city limits actually do stretch to the coast, but the actual urban area doesn't quite reach that far.
