I tried "Thessalonia".

As it turns out, the Thessalonian people are not from Thessalonia.

As a side note. Americans are also from Canada. The world is nuts.

Nice quiz. Should accept Tammerfors for Tampere since swedish is an official language of Finland.

That's an interesting comment, but why would you give an

answer in Swedish to a question that is written in English concerning a Finnish city just because some people in Finland can speak Swedish?

Yeah, it's not about can on can not speak swedish. The country has two (2) equal, official languages; finnish and swedish. So the city is called both Tampere and Tammerfors.

I think that Transylvania being described as a region in 'central' Romania is a bit of a misnomer, I would say it's more northwest or west than anything. Northwest, west or Hungarian would all be clearer for Transylvania, in my opinion.

‘Greece’s second city’ could mean anything. i got that you probably meant second most populous or second largest, but you should definitely say that in the question.

clue is perfectly fine as is. And there are a lot of things that it couldn't possibly mean.

it just seems unnecessarily vague on a quiz site home to nitpickers. could be second-established chronologically, second alphabetically, second biggest area, second biggest population… i get these are a stretch, but hopefully you understand my point that just ‘second city‘ seems vague to the point of meaninglessness.

Should it also be specified that the question is about Greece the country, in case the notion is too confusing otherwise?
