Hmm Mother Teresa doesn't really belong in this COUNTRY quiz. She was from what is today Northern Macedonia.

Misread 'religion' as 'region.' Pretty big facepalm moment. I mean, misreading happens. But the fact that my brain never corrected itself when it was so obvious something Islam-related was going to be on the quiz somewhere, plus the fact that I distinctly remember Albania being 58% Muslim. Ugh.

The vegetable filling of byrek answer is arbitrary. Spinach is one of many possible vegetable fillings - others in Albania can be onions, potato, tomato, peppers, pumpkin, nettles, leek, cabbage... The question needs to be revisited. Perhaps changed, or replaced.

I agree completely. Byrek is a Balkan dish, varieties of which can be found under different names in all Balkan countries. So I knew what it is and I also tried all the vegetables/legumes ptilinopus listed but nettles and cabbage... and spinach. It seems arbitrary to accept one filling as correct and exclude all the others. Here's the wikipedia page on this dish and its Albanian varieties:

I'm surprised I remembered the Ionian Sea. I haven't heard about it since high school.

Would you accept Warsaw for Warsaw Pact?
Level 73
Nov 16, 2020
But why? One is the capital of Poland, the other is a historical alliance. If someone talks to you about London, would you directly think of the London Blitz?

I would if our conversation's context were about famous bombing campaigns, yes. Just like this question's context is about military alliances, not capital cities.

Instead of Mother Theresa (Though Albanian in ethnicity, born in modern day North Macedonia under the Ottoman Empire) and Muhammad Ali Pasha (Again, though Albanian in ethnicity, born in modern day North Macedonia under the Ottoman Empire) questions, having questions on Skanderbeg, Zog I, and maybe on the 1997 civil war would work better - I think.

Don't know about how others feel, but as an American I've never heard of any of those people/events. On the other hand, I think everyone knows Mother Teresa and I remember learning a bit about Muhammad Ali-Pasha in high school. Even if there are some answers that are more directly relevant to Albania, I think it's still worth including these answers for those who are unfamiliar with the details of Albanian history (which I'm guessing is most people).

Also, Mother Theresa was the worst.

I can not be the only one who typed in qindar, qintar, and qindarka for the currency-I remember the subunit of the lek but not the actual lek LMAO

I went to Albania in the September of last year with a family member and a few friends from North Macedonia. As a Serb, I was sceptical and scared, for obvious reasons, but I ended up having a blast of a time! The sea was beautiful, the food was delicious and the people were actually quite chill! They didn't have a problem with me being a Serb. Be nice, be cool, be respectful, don't pick fights with anyone, no one's gonna a pick a fight with you. We had plans to travel again this year, but that didn't happen, again for obvious reasons. Hopefully, that would change the next year!

why did i put theresa may instead of mother theresa

and why did that count

Theresa is accepted, since it's a very common variant of her name, you wouldn't have had the chance to put May after it.

Yes, he would have. It just didn't count, and he'd have had to remove it again when writing his next answer.

This quiz needs one more entry for symmetry. Highly suggest Dua Lipa!
