I don't subscribe to the "possession is 9/10ths of the law" philosophy; if you steal my car, it's still *my* car – you just happened to steal it. Therefore, I like how this clue is worded.

^ Completely agree! It still BELONGS to the Ukraine.

Right?? This is why I consider the United States to be a part of the United Kingdom.

But why even stop there? The United States technically doesn't even exist, just 1000 warring Native American tribes. Take THAT, reality!

That's why it has a question mark, also both countries claim Crimea.

I also claim Crimea, so maybe I should be included in this quiz.

Thanks for your thanks on the French version - you'll see that Hagia Sophia and Yekaterinburg didn't survive in translation, because the French names Sainte-Sophie and Iekaterinbourg don't start with H or Y!!!

Welcome! Do you speak French or are you using a translator? (if the latter, it isn't even noticeable, which is good!)

How do the same % of people get the 'Spanish and Portuguese peninsula' and 'Palace of the Italian President' questions? I would have thought the peninsula would be far more well known than some italian palace?

Yes, surprisingly the new Q answer is getting many corrects!

Surprising to me too - apparently there are a lot of us Rome nerds out there!

I am AMAZED that many people know the Q answer. I have never even heard of it. I just assumed there was an obvious type in that people would know it by that i'd missed.

I'm genuinely staggered as many people know it as know a city in Switzerland that starts with Z!!

This befuddles me too, as the only type-in is Quirinal, along with some misspellings.

I didn't even have a guess for that one. No clue, whatsoever.

I don't know what you guys are seeing, but the Peninsula has 69 percent more than Q. I've never even heard of Q, or that there was a Q.

I had never previously heard of that palace but the Q was a bit of a clue - I started thinking of the hills of Rome and know one of them starts with a Q and that was it. It was a bit of a wild stab in the dark, but it paid off.

According to jetpunk, crimea is russian, so you might want to change that question.

This is more like a jab at Russia, because they shouldn't have it.

@CS Jetpunk takes no stance as to who *should* own any particular piece of land, but for consistency the convention used is whoever has control of it now.

How many more years until there is absolutely no question that Ukraine no longer owns Crimea... It's a fait accompli, whether right or wrong it's already a reality that Russia owns it. If we keep going by this logic then most countries would belong to someone else.

One thing: The Sea of Marmara could also work, as it separates European Turkey and Asian Turkey.

May 24, 2022
Yes, that's all well, but how exactly is that relevant to the question apart from that it starts with M?

How about "catalunya" and "cataluna" for "catalonia" taking the spanish/catalan spellings?

Somehow randomly guessed Xanthi. Don't even know how the name came to mind, and I don't remember seeing it anywhere, but I just randomly typed it in, and voila!

Can of worms with the Wales one...

How so? There are four parts of the UK, Wales clearly being one of them.

Level 77

Wales is hardly a fourth of the UK - neither in land area nor population - that's why.

A fourth/quarter of the countries in the UK though.

Quite impressed that I got Yekaterinburg and Valletta, but then again I didn't get Jutland somehow... Very good quiz though!

Technically Wales is not one-fourth of the UK, as it doesn't cover a fourth of the UK's land area. Rather it is one of four regions of the UK.

The quiz could be updated to say "1 of 4 countries in the United Kingdom"

It could. But it is also fine as it is.

Great quiz. Got thrown off by "Museum" for Hagia Sophia, sadly.

Level 75
May 21, 2019
"Russian city on the European border", meaning this is where Europe ends and Asia begins?

Level 81
Jun 27, 2019
'Hagia Sophia' is most known as a church, even as a mosque. But museum? Come on!

Oh man, I only missed two. I didn't know the Q answer at all, but I was close on the Y answer. I spelled it Yekaterininburg.So close and yet so far...

I thought Xanthi would be better known, they have a carnival every year.

Hagia Sofia... is a mosque once more..

Also, would you mind changing the french word 'Neerlandophone' to english word 'Dutchophone' please?

Yekaterinburg was tough! When most of us hear "border," we think administrative border. Perhaps the quiz text should be changed to "the edge of Europe" or else "the European-Asian border."

Yekaterinburg was the only y Russian city I could think of, and I would guess that for most non-native people that is the same.

"Russian city on the European border". Do you mean the border with the European continent or other European countries? Russia has 37 cities starting with the letter Y and about 6 could qualify.

Can’t believe I spelt Yekaterinburg first try.
