Nice Quiz.

Guessed Vancouver - but its urban population is less than 700k, so much lower than Vienna at about 1.9 million!

Vancouver urban area (urban area includes Surrey, Burnaby, Richmond etc) is 2.5 million. Your 700K is likely only the city of Vancouver itself, not the whole urban area.

I visit Vancouver regularly. Yup, it’s urban area is huge, sprawling across Surrey, North Van, Burnaby, Langley, etc. Maybe one day I’ll travel to Vienna to compare…

Without the "as an aspiring painter", the future dictator who lived in Vienna could also have been Stalin or Tito. They even lived there at the same time and regularly frequented the famous coffeehouse Cafe Central, together with Trotzky, Freud and others. To imagine they might have sat there playing chess and sipping coffee together...

Doesn't Varanasi (4 million +) have a higher area population than Vienna?

Varanasi’s urban area only has around 2.0 million people, according to this quiz, which though is a bit outdated.

Wikipedia and citypopulation.de both have Varanasi's metro as about 1.4 million, so that seems not unreasonable.

Only missed the Kiss painter. Beautiful city. Though also, IMO, overrated. Would a question on Beethoven make this quiz too classical music-centric?

Could you please accept 'kipferl' for 'croissant', that's what the ones "invented" in Vienna are actually called.

Great job on the quiz and a varied selection of questions. Don't feel like the last one has much to do with Vienna however.

Nice quiz! Scored 19/20 on my first try :)

Maybe the last question can be replaced with one that has to do more with Vienna - for example: Who founded Vienna?
