I'm not used to seeing Rotterdam on population quizzes, but I suppose a conurbation of two cities would end up here.

Their city centers are 20 km apart with a city inbetween (Delft), imo it makes sense. Lovely places as well, all three.

If that's the criteria you might as well add the entire "Randstad" with 8.2 million people. Including Amsterdam, Almere, Utrecht, Rotterdam, Leiden, The Hague, Amersfoort, Dordrecht, Hilversum and Haarlem. All different cities with centers about 20 km in between

Same here. Didn't get that one. The quiz does say urban area and not city proper. Apparently the two cities were joined in an official metropolitan area (Metropoolregio Rotterdam Den Haag) in 2014

I was distracted by BBC news telling "First wild beaver in 500 years spotted!" (in England) and missed an obvious one.

Ahhh FFS. I thought the quiz was the European cities in the top 200 globally in terms of best quality of life, desirability, etc, rather than population. That explains some of the surprising answers, and my rubbish effort.

Istanbul - only the European part counted? Or should we divide 16 million in half as an estimate? (Would still make the list).
