Euro Trivia Quiz #22!

Jump to last reply

SORRY THIS WAS POSTED INCORRECTLY AS ANOTHER #21 - answers on that thread will be accepted here in the new and correct one!

OK - some are not so trivial but... back by popular demand from Stateside and all over tjhe U.K. and Europe!

1- This large London open area is called XXXXXXXX XXXXX and abuts the main rail line from Padington to The West and East Acton on the west side and adjacent to it is one of H M Prisons of the same name as the park.

2- The Ko (with two dots above the o) is a fashionable street in which German city?

3- A few miles outside Cork is this world-famous castle?

3- Bunol, Spain (near Valencia) stages this popular but messy festival on the last Wednesday of Augustr each year.

4- This hilly section of Lisbon is known for its hill-climbing trams?

5- What are the four official languages of Switzerland?

6- This large Swiss department store chain still does not sell alcohol (unless changed in the last few years)

7- Europe's highest sand dune - at 100 metres high - is located where (in general).

8- It's 874 miles for bike racers between this most southernly part of England and its most northerly (well the longest transveral anyway) - but the question is between which two placds do these bike racers race?

9- In France when you see a sign "Paris 275 km" what point in Paris is always the exact starting point for 0? (Where are distances to Paris all measured from?

10 - On Lake Geneva opposite Lausanne this spiffy French resort has a name that is known world-wide for something it produces?

Whoever first answers the most wins!

< The Ko (with two dots above the o) >

If you don't have the time to write the "ö" (find the character set!) just write "oe". Actually, in German, the "oe" was the original way to write it. Gradually, the "e" was written on top of the "o" and eventually, the "e" was reduced to two dots.

Hence, "Koenigsallee" is a correct way to write "Königsallee" and "Duesseldorf" is equally correct as "Düsseldorf". BTW, the Düssel is a small creek that originates in Wülfrath.

hetismij:
I thought we'd already had #21? Shouldn't this be 22?

Does anyone really care? Probably not.:)

I CARE! And what a mistake - thanks for pointing out and hope you find a cure for your obvious boredom - this is mine!
