Can you accept Humber, as Kingston-Upon-Hull sits on the point where the two rivers meet, so although it technically does sit on the river Hull, I believe Humber should also accept it as a lot of sources list it as being on the Humber. Otherwise, great quiz!

Well, no, because there's no such town as Kingston-upon-Humber, and the question does mention the town as well.

8/20 (40%) of all the questions are UK related. For UK you need to know every small detail, for the other countries just the name (Hrvatska, Holland, Hercegovina, Hungary). I guess the author is British, but this quiz is way too much UK-centered.

Apr 8, 2020
Because in most quizzes you don't have to. Usually, we only need to write "Bosnia", and auto-fill does it for us. So it's nice that for once, we are forced to write it out - and accept our spelling shortcomings!

The Hague definitely does NOT start with an H, in dutch it is Den Haag or 's Gravenhage (the article has become unrecognizable and fully integrated into the name). The Hague starts as much with an H as New York starts with an Y or Los Angeles start with an A (or even less so) or Buenos Aires with an A.
+1
Level 83
Dec 18, 2019
There's a difference between New York and Buenos Aires on one side, which very much start with a N and a B and then Los Angeles and The Hague where it can be argued that they start with an A and an H respectively when you ignore the articles.
+1
Level 66
Dec 18, 2019
And why should you ignore well established parts of a (English) name? It is "Los Angeles", even in Russian language where there are no articles at all!. (Though The Hague is called article-freely "Gaaga" in Russian... :-D )

There's actually not really a region in the Netherlands that's called Holland, you've got North and South Holland

Sure Holland is a region. North and South Holland are provinces.

In the US, there is a region called New England, but no state called New England. There is a region called the Carolinas, which is North and South Carolina together. Holland can be both North and South Holland.
