"Kungskolmen" should really be "Kungsholmen". Also would love if "Saarenmaa" would accepted as a type-in.

It's called Saaremaa. I'm guessing Finnish is the only language which adds the N.
+3
level 49
Dec 8, 2017
Currently Saarema works as a type-in (and it is thus impossible to write Saaremaa). For me, writing Saarenmaa is less of an insult than "Saarema", which probably doesn't mean anything in any language.

Technically, 'Thira' is a region that covers Santorini (Thera) and other islands like amalfi and ios.

A lot of the Greek islands here are actually a part of Asia.
+2
level 79
Aug 29, 2017
Without having checked any maps - if Asian Greek islands are in, then the Canary Islands and Madeira should be included. Perhaps going as far as Reunion and other colonial ones for France? On the other hand, Greece is mostly thought of as one chunk and all the islands being part of that "Greece proper", Madeira, Canaries and all those French outliers are thought of as outliers and not really part of X proper. Ehm. Just draw a line somewhere, and in true JetPunk fashion there'll be a bunch of people arguing that it should be somewhere else.
+2
level 59
Aug 30, 2017
It's a bit difficult to draw the line between Europe and Asia somewhere in the Aegean, so I included all Aegean islands in the quiz. However, none of the Turkish islands are large enough. Gökçeada is the largest with 9k inhabitants.

Fun and very difficult. I got 37, although two of them were from typos that somehow happened to be acceptable type-ins for Streymoy and Goeree-Overflakkee. I only knew Ile de Re because my cousin did a summer exchange program there through his French class.

"Whether something is considered an island is usually determined by whether it's called an island." Shouldn't the Île-de-France be included then?

"usually". I guess it can be excluded if it obviously isn't an island.

There are plenty famous smaller islands – Stromboli, Vulcano, Lampedusa, Heligoland, Ios, Patmos and many other Greek and Croatian islands. Or Scottish or Scandinavian if one is more familiar with that part of Europe

Flevoland should be replaced by Flevopolder. Flevoland (population 408k) is the entire province consisting of 1/3 part reclaimed mainland (Noordoostpolder) and 2/3 island. The island part is called Flevopolder and only has 317k inhabitants.
+1

Looks like you're right. I've fixed the population. The name flevoland can also refer to the island part though.
+2
level 60
Dec 6, 2017
I really cannot find any source referring to the island part as Flevoland. I think you can allow it as a possible answer, but it really should show up as Flevopolder

There's something wrong with Venice. Just Cannaregio is listed, but it's just one of the six historical neighborhoods that constitute the city, the others being Castello (30k inhabitants), Dorsoduro (15,5k), Santa Croce (5k), San Marco (4k) and San Polo (4k). None of these properly makes up a single island, since the original topography of the lagoon has been - quite obviously - deeply reshaped century after century. Venice should be definitely counted as one, with around 60k inhabitants as a whole.

A few nitpicks: One of the umlauts of Färingsö are missing. Sjælland is spelled with æ. You have included Södertörn although parts of it are only separated from the mainland by manmade canals. I guess you've included it because Statistics Sweden has classified it as an island (since 2014). But at the same time, the same government organization has stopped classifying Hertsön as an island (also since 2014).

And a question: What continent do the Azores belong to if not Europe? You have included the Channel Islands, Isle of Man and Åland even though they are overseas territories.
