Very interesting quiz! However, I think it should be "word" instead of "road" in the clue: The German road for street.

Double face palm. Did the entire quiz and couldn't understand why you wouldn't take Nottingham for the English City on the Trent. Despite having got most of the answers it didn't dawn on me that they all started with the letter "S" and it was an "S" themed quiz.

Hard to be as switched on as me!

Ha! I often find myself using the rules of the previous quiz on the current one (with the inevitably bad results).

A lot of people probably know the word "street" in a few languages. I don't speak French but I know "rue" for example.

How about changing the language question into more geographical one? Such as "Historical region in Poland and Czech Republic" (answer: Silesia). Or "Capital of Crimea" (answer: Simferopol). Or maybe "The largest city on the Crimean Peninsula" (Sevastopol)

And perhaps include less UK-related questions : 7 out of 22 are about the UK here...

Come on, UK shouldn't represent a third of a European Geography quiz for such a (relatively) tiny island !

It is in the top 10 of europe's biggest countries, so relatively, it isnt that small (especially for an island, it is the in the top 10 biggest islands worldwide).

^But Germany, which is larger, more populous and has a bigger economy than the UK is represented by only 2 questions in the quiz. Furthermore, many of the UK-related questions are somewhat obscure, while there could be far more internationally famous answers from the rest of Europe. There does seem to be a bias, even though I'm personally fine with it.

Castilian only has one "L" in it. Just saying.

@ relessness or QM, whatever you prefer.

Could you try one with no UK-related questions, as an experiment?

Just to see if you get any complaints - my guess is that you would....
