I do. The only reason I got Kiev on this go-around is that I happen to be in Kiev this morning. But I'm also pleased I remembered Seoul.

I accidentally typed "Cambodia" for Phnom Penh, but i got stopped, and I got the right answer for Cambridge! HA! Also, Warsaw, Poland, is located at the point where the Vistula and Bug rivers meet. Just FYI

Not exactly. Bug flows into the Narew which joins with the Vistula ~20 km northwest of Warsaw.

You should also accept Dnipro, the Ukrainian name for the river, or Dnepr, the Russian name for it.

I think I've only seen the Ukrainian spellings since I'm here in Ukraine and it's the first I recall hearing about it... but somehow I got the right answer trying different variations of spelling.
