I have no idea what Sognefjord is, yet still got it, for where else but Scandinavia could a name like that be found?

It's a big fjord. :)

I drive a big Fjord. Best pick-up truck I've ever had.

Norway is the obvious first guess, seeing as it's hugely famous for fjords.

Maybe this is a very dumb question, but what is a fjord?

@ ItsJerry -- a kind of very narrow bay. Like a mountain valley filled with water I guess? Wikipedia is your friend: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fjord

Caused by glaciers. Have to be longer than they are wide to qualify. Besides Norway, there are lots in NZ, Chile, and the Americas (e.g. Chile, British Columbia, Alaska, Washington).

Great quiz. Ironically, in two weeks' time I'm going to a hotel right next door to the Eureka Tower, and I still didn't get it!

look up the image on google. I've seen it many many times... including in person... but... when I was reading "merlion" I was reading it as one strange word and couldn't make sense of it.

@ander217 -- Singapore means "Lion City", and the Merlion is (per google) its official mascot.

Yup I thought it was French too. Learned something today. Also now know that there are 7 merlions there (one is a mere mercub). Apparently finding them makes for a fun bike ride: Tour de Merlion

I've lived in Canada my entire life and I've never heard of Moraine Lake. How have 53% of people heard of a landmark that people who live there haven't?

Jan 8, 2018
I knew moraine was a glacial feature, and USA was already used, so I guessed Canada.
+1
level 73
Jun 6, 2018
Because only Canada and the US have glacier?

level 58
Jun 11, 2018
@TheCrusher No, but "lots of glacier geology and uses English terms for it" means the U.S. and Canada were the two obvious guesses.

Never heard of it either, but I got it. Ever heard of this thing called guessing?

Obviously I wasn't going to guess Canada since I live in Canada and had never heard of it!

Yup, Canadian and never heard of it. Looks pretty though. Maybe substitute for Lake Louise? Only semi-obscure?

I've heard of Lake Louise (and been there). It's internationally famous, is it not?

And if that doesn't work, there's the trusty fall-back of re-taking the quiz once you've seen the answers! :P

When I quickly solved everything else, I had plenty of time to guess all faraway countries (excluding Europe) with possible glacier lakes

It seems that lots of people forego traveling and exploring locally. When I lived in Philadelphia, I was astonished at how many people who lived there had never gone to see the Liberty Bell or Independence Hall. Many people were in their 20s and 30s and had lived in Philly their entire lives...
+2
level 76
Jun 1, 2018
But they've heard of the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, right? This isn't about a lack of exploration. I've been to 8 out of 10 provinces and I know my country very well, but I've never heard of Moraine Lake to visit it!

Same here, Canadian and never heard of Moraine Lake before, so I didn't try Canada. I had to google it afterwards to see where it was. I can only imagine that most of the people who did get the answer are non-Canadian who randomly typed Canada. How about replacing Lake Moraine with "Banff National Park", which is much more well-known and more worthy of being called a landmark on its own?
+2

Your loss. Moraine Lake is beautiful. In Banff NP.

I've visited Banff several times, stayed in lake Louise. never heard of Moraine Lake though

Jun 1, 2018
Indeed. I've been to Banff, so I may have visited Moraine Lake and not realized it. No one talked about it. Everyone talked about Lake Louise.

You could change the Indian landmark...that is not known by many people. In fact, people outside Delhi have little chance of knowing it.

Woah I'd totally forgotten it's a Bahai temple! I was just guessing all the historically Budhist countries...

May 24, 2018
I knew it but probably only because I was looking up things to do when I was in Delhi. The ones I never heard of were Moron Lake and Potato Palace

I have the feeling Potala Palace is really famous, but I'm not sure why... Well, there's this memorable bit of history which is mostly set there: https://mikedashhistory.com/2012/04/10/murder-in-the-potala/

why do you persist with the fact that England is not a country??? The United Kingdom (UK) comprises four countries: England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Within the United Kingdom, a unitary sovereign state, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales have gained a degree of autonomy through the process of devolution.
