PalenQ isn't Stavenger in Norway?>

I meant Stavoren! Still wrong.

6- they are all above the Arctic Circle? Just a guess - at first I was going to say they were all in Siberia but then that ain't Europe.

A sort of diversion about clergy getting away with things - if you were on trial for a capital offence, you could avoid the noose by pleading "benefit of clergy" which basically meant that you could read. You [i say "you" but this largely applied to men as most people who could read were priests] were then dealt with by the much less strict ecclesiastical courts.

sorry I can't help with any of the outstanding answers - the only one i knew was Arthur's Seat.

i could add another question -

No 11 - who was Greyfriar's Bobby? [all brits are disqualified from answering this one 'cos you will undoubtedly have seen the film.]

tom_mn you are right for #6...they are all the coldest places in Europe for sure.

SORRY about #8 I should have added that the places is in Brussels.
It is unfair not to name the location...making one guess all over Europe.!!

# 8 : This Park Palace is in Brussels. If you are ever there be sure to see it and drive underneath it, even if you have to take a taxi ride, it is gorgeous on the other side with water fountains.

Gee, Perce, you say the nicest things. Scarlett will be getting jealous!

I wish that we'd known about the park when we visited Brussels a few years ago - still perhaps a reason to go back, apart from the food that is.
