    Well, history is deeply tied to the study of geography, and I'd like to see how well-versed users here are.

    Use spoiler tags for all answers. I'll close this in three days.

    Without any website consultation, name as many European capitals as you can.

    That one is incorrect.

    The capital is:
  8. ysabel

    France - Paris (If I didn't know this I should kill myself now).
    Spain - Madrid
    Belgium - Brussels
    Portugal - Lisbon
    UK - London (er or is it England - London and the others have their own capital?)
    Ireland - Dublin
    Germany - Berlin
    Netherlands - Amsterdam
    Greece - Athens
    Poland - Warsaw
    Italy - Milan? or Rome?
    Romania - Bucharest
    Hungary - Budapest
    Switzerland - Zurich
    Russia - Moscow
    Austria - Vienna

    Anyway, that's all I remember at the moment. Some of these are just guesses based on the main airports I know, I just assumed it's the capital. :hah:
