I got 4, and 2 of those only because I started entering the names of Turkish football clubs. Funny, the cities of Fenerbahce, Galatasaray and Besiktas didn't show up. :-P

Surprised not many people know Şanlıurfa, it used to be Edessa. Also Denizli, it's near Pamukkale.

I missed Denizli, despite having been to Pamukkale. One of the most strange and beautiful places I've ever been. Doesn't seem to be as well known as it should be IMO.

Since you're also using the Turkish İ, as distinct from the more common I which also appears in Turkish, in the answers ("İzmir"), please note that İstanbul also starts with İ.

I got two. Apparently, Ilium/Troy is no longer highly populated, but thousands of years ago my answer would have totally rocked this quiz.

If you know the Turkish football league teams, you'll get at least 7 by deleting "spor" or "gucu" from the end of the clubs' names.

I'm not surprised but disappointed that Batman is not on this list. It would be fantastic.
