7/26/2017 – Hi again – I’m looking to hopefully by the end of August begin redoing the site with a fresh look and new features, hopefully to be done sometime before the end of September. This includes a new design, appearance, scorekeeping (hopefully with live leaderboards) and more. Keep an eye out! Also I will be removing the Flash quizzes and geography quizzes that aren’t using Google Maps by then (remaking some of them after the remodel) to make the site more clean and organized.

Directions

Name the capitals (or if no capital/administrative center exists, then largest city) of the administrative divisions of each European country. A handful may just have the country itself or a regional division if it doesn’t have administrative divisions. Russia & Turkey are divisions with capitals in Europe only, however a handful of divisions for a couple countries are outside of Europe geographically so you may have to zoom out. A couple dependent territories are also included if they are an integral part of the country. Some cities may count twice when answered if they’re the capital of multiple divisions (such as a province’s capital and an autonomous city).

    Why do you have Balashikha for Moscow Oblast, but no city for Leningrad Oblast? Also some places seem to be in a different location, for example Selfoss and Keflavík in Iceland and Kumanovo in Macedonia. And I’m pretty sure Latvia has more regions and capitals (for example Ventspils is missing)

      ill fix the locations…forgot to put in Leningrad’s largest city. Latvia has only 6 statistical regions.

        why do you use statistical regions?

          Latvia has about 100 municipalities – i didn’t want to have a ton of regions for a particular country so i used statistical regions for Latvia (much like using countries for England).

            you can use the administrative division before 2009 – it has about 30 regions

              30 divisions for a country the size of Latvia is way too much. The current 6 seems about right. There’s also problem with the loading time for this quiz… if you add more border files the worse it will get.

                But 35 for Moldova or 26 for Switzerland is okay eh? We’re not the ones to decide how many regions should the country have.

                there are only six regions for Latvia. the next step is the municipalities, of which there are about 100.

      i didn’t include it for this one – it’s not identical to the other one.
      1. 0
        Ok… thought they were basically the same. There are indeed 10 more regions than capitals though I have no idea on why should Gibraltar be left out. It’s a similar case to that of Doulgas or St Helier. No big deal.

    1516 (there’s no way to reply to your message above), of course Moldova also has way too many divisions but I’m sure Darin couldn’t find a suitable easier partition of the country. For Swiss it was obvious that it should be the Cantons, what else could it be? Sure we don’t get to choose how many regions a country has… I was referring to quiz-context only as I’m sure there’s not a huge player demand to have 30 Latvia regions to guess. In reality they can have as much as they want… Hell, Monaco has 10 administrative divisions.
