Surprising how many things I expected to see on this quiz that weren't. Cities like: Budapest, Bucharest, Birmingham, Belfast, Belgrade, etc.

In other words, there are lots of places that begin with B in Europe - you can't have them all otherwise the quiz would become more like an exam at school. Have some realistic expectations

Brussels, it should be clarified, is one of three capitals of the European Union - the legislative capital is Strasbourg, and the judiciary capital Luxembourg. The clue should reflect this by asking for "one of the capitals of the EU".

OK, but Brussels is the only one that begins with 'B'. You'd have to be pretty special to type in Luxembourg or Strasbourg.

Right, but these quizzes teach a lot of people these facts for the first time. Someone who didn't know about EU capitals before this quiz might mistakenly think Brussels is its only capital. If the clue were reworded, that wouldn't be an issue. Misinformation is never good.

It just says "capital of the EU." It doesn't say THE capital of the EU.

Well, everybody from the Union thinks of Brussels as its capital at first. It is undeniable that Strasbourg and Luxembourg also host some EU institutions, but I have never heard someone to regard them as "capital(s) of the EU".

Technically there isn't any capital of the EU. However there are so many institutions based in Brussels that it has become the de facto capital.

I didn't say it was wrong - I just think it would be more accurate to clarify, if only to correct the wrong perception that Brussels is THE capital of the EU.

And Bretagne for Brittany.

Also I don't know why I got such a hard time remembering "Bordeaux", I tried "beaujolais" and "bourgogne" .. the only wine-words starting with B I could think of. Not even sure they are regions :D
