This probably has something to do with the fact that many of them are capitals!

That argument hardly flies, there are onl around 45 countries form the top of my head. And for the several the capital is not even on here ( mainly the balkan countries, but also baltic and iceland and the tiny countries)

A (very) quick count shows me 28 of the capitals (could be off by one or two though) So less than 2/3 of the capitals are represented.

So 28 out of 100 I wouldnt say many of them are capitals at all.

This quiz has many mistakes. 1. Riga (the capital of Latvia) has 1 million people. Why Riga isn't in this quiz? 2. Wrocław has 638k, Katowice has 300k. Why Wrocław isn't in this quiz and Katowice is in this quiz. PLEASE FIX THE MISTAKES!!!

Hey, looks like you're right. I copied this from the featured Europe map quiz. That one has a dot over all the small countries. Turns out they weren't even included in that map.

I've wanted to feature this for a long time. Today, I finally put in the time to fact check it thoroughly. Unfortunately, we can't feature it because the data sources are not complete. I am happy with the citypopulation.de data, but that only gets us the first 73 cities or so. For cities below 1 million, there is no good source of data! The numbers that Wikipedia reports are all over the place. Eurostat only includes EU cities and their data is a little weird as well. When I tried to build a list of largest cities using Wikipedia and Eurostat data I got a different list than this quiz. Unfortunately, if this quiz was featured, I couldn't stand 100% behind the data. No fault to LovesPoetry, it's just that good data doesn't seem to exist.

Understandable. The issue is that Eurostat counts differently and it also does not count consistently, so I tried to correct for that. I kept doing that until I found a distribution that made sense statistically So this is sort-of my own data source and not any external source. I do stand behind it though

All cities in this list appear in that top 200 list as well. The reverse isn't necessarily true, because the map cuts off a part of Russia that contains some big cities
