About This Quiz

Europe is not just the European Union. It's a continent with about 50 countries. Twenty-seven of these (plus Britain, for now) belong to the European Union, but there are others that merely live alongside them and do business with them. Europe has been inhabited for some 10,000 years and more, since before the dawn of civilization, which means that its cities tended to grow very organically. Sometimes they would grow, flourish for a period, and then be destroyed. Other times, however, it meant that they would simply be conquered, renamed, and absorbed into a new empire or nation. Some cities achieved independence, while others started out that way but later became part of a larger whole, as in Greece or Italy.

How well do you know the cities of Europe? Even if you've visited a few of them, you may struggle to match the city to the country. After all, Europe's borders shift a lot, such that you could live in the same house your entire life and move countries a whole lot of times! Still, we're interested to know if you can pinpoint the city and the state as they are today. Let's see how you do!
