Fun quiz and concept! But Amsterdam Zuidoost is part of Amsterdam and I believe the Brussels districts should be added to Brussels aswell.

Thanks!

I wasn't sure about including Amsterdam-Zuidoost, now it is not on the quiz, thanks for the information.

And about the Brussels area cities, I think they are separate municipalities to the city of Brussels, and as the populations for the quiz are city proper, I decided to include them. If I merge them with Brussels, then it would be the Brussels metro area, and not its city proper, but I'm not sure if that is the most correct thing. If more peolpe request it I'll make the change

indeed, those cities near Brussels aren't included to the municipality of Brussels. The Brussels Urban Area is actually a sort of province (next to Flanders and Wallonia), with several municipalities.

Very good quiz. Only you should update some data.

Thanks for the clarification!

I couldn't find more recent data for city proper populations on neither wikipedia nor Citypopulation.de, so I'm going to leave the population figures as they are for now

Wow Brussels city proper is way smaller than I would have thought.

Yeah,that's because the Brussels region is divided into municipalities. If you include them, the population is larger, but that¡d technically be urban area
