He means the Lounge. We have had this discussion before, and since it is Europe based, and actually quite educational I see no reason for it to move.
Thanks for setting today's quiz Percy.

Oh, and if #4 is what I think it is, it is in my son's home town.

I won't answer just yet to give others a chance.

3- Bruges - I've seen th Procession of Holy Blood several times in May I believe where th vial with the purported holy blood is paraded thru town - locals dress in medieval garb.

2- Brussels but no clue about the park or other things in it.

No clue well some clue but can't even hazard a guess on the other!

Why what is more relevant to the Europe forum than such a quiz that informs many others who can't answer the questions about cool things to see and do in Europe.

And the Lounge - I assume you mean the Lounge and not mistakingly the forum - is closed to all but a few old Fodorgarchs - thus it is extremely relevant to the Europe forum and why you can't see that beats me.

Yes # 3 is Bruges.

Sorry John
Many people could not enter The Lounge now.
It is closed to only those that registered a few years ago ( at Fodors request).

Okay hetismij2 , but you may have to answer if no one gets it.

I don't get the prize. I only managed 4 of the 10, and one of those was a shoo-in for me.

Okay I will take # 2 as Heysel Park because hetismij2 is close and in the "ballpark" ( pun intended)

The park is Brupark and is part of the largest Complex of Heysel Park.

#1 is called the Atomium

Sorry hetismij2 the #4 answer is not the one I want but I can see why you picked your answer.

We still need to answer # 4, #9 and # 10.
