Europe Countries Administrative Divisions


Name the main administrative divisions (tried to use first-level but occasionally 2nd, also included a few special territories that may not be classified as admin divisions) of each European country. Russia/Turkey only show regions within Europe. Regions/areas outside continental Europe are included for some countries – you will have to zoom out to see those. ‘Top 10’ etc categories bottom right refer to top by population. For smaller countries not divided up just name the country to fill it in. NOTE: this quiz will take a few moments to load, so you may have to wait for the map to display.

Enter guesses above to begin quiz.


  1. For some reason, this quiz isn’t working for me, and only this quiz. The basic layout loads, but not the data. Entering stuff does nothing, there’s no timer, the Pause button does nothing, etc.

  2. What should I type to get Päijät-Häme and Zakarpattia?? Also when you type Krasnodar it colors Adygea in, but doesn’t give the answer. BTW, what’s the point of including the French Overseas regions (and some other regions that are not in Europe) but not Russian and Turkish regions that are in Asia?

    1. The French Overseas regions, as well as Madeira and Canary Islands, are so few that it would silly the left them out just because they’re outside Europe. The quiz would look incomplete without them. They belong to an European country and that’s it. Russia and Turkey have a lot or regions that stretch beyond the usual Huge Quiz Europe/Asia division. That’s how I see it anyway.

      1. Now if I type “Paijat Hame” it only gives the northeastern part of the region, the other 2 parts are still left blank. Also you’ve got another error in Finland – Varsinais-Suomi and Kanta-Häme both don’t work (neither do Southwest Finland or Finland Proper), but if you type Tavastia Proper it gives you both regions

    1. Ireland has counties so not sure why not UK! OK some unitary city council areas but hardly overkill to show? England doesn’t have its own government so it’s not an ‘administrative’ division.

  3. I can get the map to load, but I can’t get the quiz to really start. I’ve entered divisions that I know to exist, but nothing registers, and the counter sits at 0/0, despite the clock counting up.

    1. you’ll have to try reloading it – and hold CTRL when clicking refresh. it probably didn’t load all the line data, and there’s well over 50MB of it. if it loads correctly you’ll see the outlines of all divisions and the counters will have numbers before you even start (i.e. 0/752 for divisions).

  4. i tried to use the most current divisions of each country, however for some i was unable to find a file with the current outlines – example is Denmark which i used previous counties instead of the current regions.
