Great quiz, thank you. It was a challenge, as you say, but I think it's good that there are a mix of difficulty levels on the site and that one does an occasional quiz that makes you think a bit more.

Konigsberg was a city in East Prussia until after the Second World War when the Soviets conquered it and incorporated it into the RSFSR. It was renamed Kaliningrad after Kalinin, one of Stalin's various hangers-on.

Kingston upon Hull confused the CRAP out of me. I grew up in a Canadian city called Kingston, likewise there's a Canadian city called Hull that I've also been to (In Quebec right on the border of Ontario. Lots of Ottawa-area kids go there to drink when they're still not old enough at home). Mash the two together and I just went "Wha? Dammit, can North America have ANY original place names?!?!?!?"

I knew the second half is "havn." Unfortunately, I didn't knew that you also need to swap P for B. Still, 17/20 is not bad, when the average is 10/20. I guess this is why most of the other quizes are too "western centric."
