Duh.. that was too easy, obviously.
But you're right, it's Copenhagen. And if you guessed it that quickly you will probably know why it was not the case before 2000.

No, I'm just going to CPH in a few months so I am thinking about it and where it is.

5. Yes, the Palace of St Cloud was the centerpiece of what is now the park of the same name. It appears to have been quite large, becoming a royal palace for just a few years, bought by Louis XVI in 1785 or so, with a garden by Andre Le Notre.

Mever got to #10

#10 - The list of highest waterfalls is often controversial, due to the ambiguity of whether to measure the single largest fall or the sum of a series of falls, and many falls make false claims to the record. This table measures waterfalls by tallest single drop.

Q- At 200 metres under this criteria what is the tallest waterfalls in the U.K.? And where is it?
