Twelfth Night takes place in Illyria, which is in the Western Balkans (so Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro and Albania are accepted for that one). "[Illyria] included the city-state of the Republic of Ragusa which has been proposed as the setting." Ragusa centered on the city of Dubrovnik in Croatia's Dalmatia region.

Good quiz. Isn’t there a scene in Hamlet which takes place in Norway? I could be remembering wrong.

Nicely done! I'm glad to see As You Like It properly set in France. And there's nothing to be done about The Tempest; it's on an island in the Mediterranean between Tunis and Italy, but who knows where exactly?
