Europe Quiz # 60 ( Monday)

Jump to last reply

Watching the Oscars and doing this quiz..

First try to answer those that you can right off the bat... ( if any :) ) this is the Honor System),... then look at your notes if you have been to these places, look in your travel book and finally and last, you can google because you still have to read and learn, and this should be a learning experience.

1. In 1814 Norway and Sweden were in a Union
In1905 they regained their independence.
Sweden gives out the Nobel Prize for Physics, Chemistry, Medicine and Literature.

How come Oslo Norway gives out the Peace Prize only.?

2. Peter the Great of Russia went to the Netherlands to learn ship building.
He came mainly to this one place in the Netherlands, and there is now a Peter the Great Museum here, three statues of him.
One of the statues is of him building a ship disguised as a carpenter.

What Place did he come to in the Netherlands and name the place.?

3. In the lovely town of Hoorn in the Netherlands is a statue of a man who was once admired..... then it was learned that this high ranking officer of the East India Company was a brutal murderer who killed many people in Jakarat.

His monument was taken down then put back up again in 2011, to let the people decide and remember his past deeds.

Who was this man ?

4. There is a list of 10 places in Paris that offer the best views of Paris.
( I will give you one of the places: Les George at Pompidou Centre., you can have a nice wine or cuppuccino here and just admire the views,)

Name three other places. They must be on the list I have.?

5. This mountain in Switzerland is not the highest but it is the most awesome.
The best views are from Zermatt.
A cogwheel train take up high up a mountain for great views and there is a hotel here. (I I had lunch here !!).

Name the mountain. ?

6. This Church/ Cathedral in Geneva has the original chair used by John Calvin (one of the founders of the Reformation Movement), from which he gave many of his speeches
You cannot sit in this chair as a rope is stretched across the chair.

Name the Church that houses this Chair.

7. This castle is the largest Red Brick Castle in Europe.
Name the Castle and the country .!

8. This Church is the largest Red Brick Church in the World.
Name the Church and the Location.

9. This Church is the Highest Red Brick Church in the World and the 2nd highest Red Brick Structure in the world.
Name the Church? Name the Location ? What is the highest Red Brick Structure.?

10. In Geneva there is a wall in bas-relief depicting the Four Founding Fathers of the Protestant Reformation.
