About This Quiz

While many of the world's major cities have a lot in common, there are a lot of differences too. Just because you can find a Starbucks in hundreds of cities around the world doesn't mean that they are all the same. Cities have different histories, triumphs, problems, and mixes of cultures. Some are huge international hubs where you can find almost anything and everything you could imagine, and others are smaller and more laid back and tend to fall below the radar, which is just how the inhabitants like it. 

Around the world, there are all sorts of cities, from the big to the small, from the recently built to ones that have been settled in some form for thousands of years. Each has its unique charms and offerings. Just because the crowded streets of Tokyo might be too much for you doesn't mean that you wouldn't love the quiet and winding streets of Sevilla, Spain. If Moscow is way too cold for you, that doesn't mean you wouldn't love the eternal summer of the hot and beachy Los Angeles.
