5/26/2022 update: I had inadvertently used the urban agglomeration population data for Greece, Netherlands, and Portugal. This has been corrected.

Hey, just a couple of quick notes. Munich's dot in Germany doesn't work correctly and Plzen should be an accepted spelling. Otherwise, great quiz.

Reykjanesbaer is a community in Iceland, not a city, with overall population less than 20000. Really don't know where are these numbers coming from? Let alone Reykjavik, 2nd in line is Kópavogur, then Hafnarfjörður. Same thing goes with Baerum, it's a municipality in greater Oslo region, not a city. 5th Norwegian city in the line is Drammen. Plzen is correct, not Pilsen, which is a German name for the city. If I was Czech, I wouldn't have liked it.

As stated at the top of the page, the source for everything in this series of quizes was citypopulation.de as of April 2023. I'm actually in the process of updating these quizzes, and I did notice that Reykjanesbaer is no longer even listed on their website. I've noticed a number of such inconsistencies and changes since I last updated this quiz since last year, so I think I'm going to completely redo this entire series, using a different source.

I would however point out that this is an English language quiz and therefore I am using the common English spellings for the cities. For example, I'm also not using Praha for Prague or Köln for Cologne.

Munich is not lighting up green and Baerum is a district of Oslo.
