Level 50
Jun 21, 2016
UK (Gibraltar) Gibraltar borders the Mediterranean and is a british oversea territory so UK/Gibraltar should be on there. Otherwise good quiz

Level 47
Jun 21, 2016
You said it yourself. It is an overseas territory that does NOT make up part of the the UK. Unlike Hawaii is a part of the USA and Fremch Guiana is a part of France, The UK DOES NOT include overseas territories.
+1

Jun 24, 2016
The United Kingdom is the country. (See Wikipedia) and they also have the British overseas department - which is what Gilbraltar is.

But seriously, you could just google this before commenting something that can be riven wrong quite easily

I got 100%, but if we want to get technical, most of the former Yugoslavia (Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro) borders the Adriatic or Ionian at best, not the Mediterranean proper. However, it fits into the theme I suppose.

So tired of those who take these quizzes simply to find some obscure deviation from the usual (read popular answer) and

then inundate us with their "superior knowledge"! - In reality,

except for egregious mistakes, WE REALLY DON'T CARE!!!

I needed two more. After time was finished but hadnt scrolled down to the answers yet I realised I typed crete instead of cyprus! (I ve only been up a few minutes.. and cant exactly call it awake..) maybe it not being accepted wasnt weird to me because of all the cyprus isnt in europe stuff... and I just accepted that it wasnt accepted...

and ofcourse...as allways... I forgot greece... poor greece..:/

It is sometimes unclear how "Mediterranean Sea" is defined. Bosnia, Slovenia, and Montenegro technically border the Adriatic Sea, not the Med. Yes, the Adriatic is an arm of the Mediterranean, but in that case, so is the Black Sea, which adds another group of countries.

An answer to my own query:

The International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) divides the Mediterranean into a number of smaller waterbodies, each with their own designation (from west to east):[36]

the Strait of Gibraltar;

the Alboran Sea, between Spain and Morocco;

the Balearic Sea, between mainland Spain and its Balearic Islands;

the Ligurian Sea between Corsica and Liguria (Italy);

the Tyrrhenian Sea enclosed by Sardinia, Italian peninsula and Sicily;

the Ionian Sea between Italy, Albania and Greece;

the Adriatic Sea between Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Albania;

the Aegean Sea between Greece and Turkey.
