I know there are two, but couldn't you accept just "Novgorod" for Nizhniy Novgorod? Not like this quiz isn't hard enough already.

I agree with that. Please allow "Novgorod". After all, it begins with "N"...

"Nizhny" is the short version that will work (and also various misspellings of Nizhny). I don't think anyone calls it Novgorod.

I only know it as Novgorod. Never heard about the Nizhniy part before.

Novgorod is an older town (since 1999 officially called Veliky Novgorod). Nizhny Novgorod means New Novgorod.

Nizhny Novgorod means “Lower Novgorod”. And Novgorod means “New City”.

No, I'm not, so the city I'm thinking of might be the one kimad is talking about.

Nizhny means "lower" and Novgorod means "new city". So it is Lower New City. Not Russian, but Slav of course :)

There are two cities:

- Novgorod, west of Moscow, closer to SPB, which is older, more famous, also called Novgorod Velikiy (Novgorod the Great) to distinguish it and since 1999 also oficially called Velikiy Novgorod

- Nizhny Novgorod, east of Moscow, formerly Gorky, much bigger nowadays, commonly called just Nizhny

As someone who used to live in Nizhny NovgorodI have to say that there is a huge difference between the two cities. They are completely different places. As for accepting the shortened word, that's perfectly acceptable as many of the people I knew and spoke with colloquially said "Nizhny" instead of "Nizhney Novgorod". I lived there for a year and a half and I'm excited each time see it on these geography quizzes.

I never hear the Nizhny, and I'm pretty sure most quizzes here just accept Novgorod

Add Norwich, in England, although it isn't a large city, it is still a city.

I thought the city on Okinawa was going to be Nago. Suppose that would be a gimme with that other Japanese city in there, though.

This was really hard, but I felt good! That's because usually I have one or two in the revealed answers that are just facepalms. But this time, the ones I missed were ones I have legitimately never heard of before. Yay!

Interesting. Completely clueless on the city in Serbia and never heard of Novi Sad. Nor apparently have iMaps, which took me to Munich until I insisted on the right country at least 😁

Nago as an alternative for Naha? There's no way the map gets close enough for you to be able to distinguish.

Naha looks like it is in the middle of the ocean not even on a island and yeah like onegonecat just said there is no way you can distinguish that that is Naha it could be Nago too, Definitely!

I accidentally misspelled Nanning with a 'j' after the first 'n'. So I guess that was the most helpful error I've ever made although I would have got Nanjing regardless...

I'm surprised Naha is so rarely guessed. Okinawa is a pretty popular destination and one has to fly into Naha, even if the city itself is not great.
