Valletta, 380 000 inhabitants? Why did you took all the population of the island?

The island is practically a single urban area

Breda and Tilburg are two very separate cities. They're not connected in any way whatsoever. There aren't even buildings between them. Putting them together as one urban area doesn't make sense. It's like saying Manchester and Liverpool are the same city; or New York and Philadelphia.

In Spain there are bigger cities than Santander, Pamplona or Granada. Try Cordoba for example.

Looks like you're right. Eurostat puts Cordoba at 362k, which would put it in this quiz.

Most of the dots are a bit off. I used a script to fetch the location of each city off the google maps API then used that data to place them all on the map. Either the map is a bit off, or the google maps API didn't give me the right location.

One of the dots seem to be missing altogether. I missed Brest, then looked for it on the map afterwards and it isn't there.

There are 2 cities named Brest in Europe. The one on the tip of Bretagne and one on the border of Poland and Belarus, formerly known as Brest-Litovsk. The former isn't big enough to make it into the list though.
