It has a population of ~96 000 according to wikipedia, but it might be counted in the populations of either The Hague or Rotterdam since it's just a few kilometres from both. Still a nice quiz though ;)

I'm sorry, but as it says in the description: "Source: citypopulation.de" not "Source: citypopulation.de and sometimes Wikipeadia"

Yes, I completely understand your point, and it's good to keep it strict or you could be arguing 'till 2018 about it.

Hi. Great quiz, but you have unfortunately confused the Belgian agglomerations and the communities. Therefore Brussels (179.277) is listed as a urban area of 2 million+, but it's satelites such as Ixelles, Anderlecht, Schaerbeek are all listed as well. It's either all, with Brussels at 179k or none and only Brussels with 2M+. On another note: 11 & 12, Mons is in Belgium and Leiden in the Netherlands.

For fun you could add Willemstad 135.000, which is on Curacao, which is part of the Netherlands :)
