Lives up to its difficulty level. There are also some rivers in Australia and the Nordic countries that flow by major cities, which would be fun to see.

Please accept Wisla for Vistula. Wisla is its Polish name and the river is known as Wisla in the rest of Eastern Europe as well.

I wouldn't say Xi'an lies on the Yellow River. It's a good 120km off, judging from Google Maps. I'd say that the Wei River should be the correct answer, or at least an accepted type-in.

Yellow river does not flow through Xi'an. Wei river instead.
