Darn. Only missed the Tchaikovsky question. I thought another composer had done that one...
Level 76

Another composer (Mozart) did write the Magic Flute. That is why the question is "which was NOT composed by Tchaikovsky"!
Level 66
Aug 30, 2021
I didn’t know who wrote ‘The Magic Flute’ but I knew that the other options were definitely written by Tchaikovsky.

yea I first skipped the quiz then thought what the hell, lets give it a go. And figured I probably would only get 3 right. But actually I only got 3 wrong !! much much better than I expected beforehand (but during I allready realised it wasnt too bad) the music, sea, and least guessed question.

Babushka is one of the names for Russian stacking dolls, so the first question has two correct answers.
Level 65
Jul 23, 2019
they're called matryoshka in Russian; babushka is well-known as the old woman / grandmother and the iconic headscarf
Level 54
Aug 30, 2021
Having spent the first 5+ years of my life there, I can absolutely assure you that "Babushka" means grandmother, but is often used just to refer to old ladies, and "Matryoshka" is a stacking doll.

great quiz but as a russian speaker babushka actually translates better as grandma but in the streets if you say "smotri na etu babushku" (look at that old woman/grandma) it better translates to old woman but in most scenarios it is grandma
