Yes, it's a bit of a stretch... I guess it can be considered as human geography? Hard question anyway.

There always must be at least one question about UK in "European Geography by letter" series. There's no other way ;)

So I waste a bunch of time trying to figure out the English way to spell Wisla (pronounced viswa) and it turns out it's Vistula.

Strictly speaking, Stalingrad is now called St. Petersburg not Volgograd

St. Petersburg was Leningrad, not Stalingrad. But that's an easy mistake to make. I looked it up to be certain.

Villa in Italian does not mean "Country" home. It's just a home. It's a term often used to identify larger than average homes, or more luxurious ones, while small ones may be called "Villetta". Villas can be anywhere including big cities, not only country.

It's complicated but the clue is generally correct:

Valladolid is like Bloemfontein. You know the answer, but have absolutely no idea how to spell it. :-D

Pfffft. Only one question about the UK, and it wasn't even a geography question.

Could you not even stretch to something like 'US state named for Elizabeth I'?

Why? It's a 20-question quiz. There are 44 countries in Europe. How much over-representation of the UK would be adequate? Plus I'm quite sure if there was a question on here about a US state the whining would be deafening.

Castile and León has no capital. Valladolid is just the seat of several of the most important govern institutions but is not the capital, as is not listed as that in the "Estatuto de autonomía"
