Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Home to the largest lake in Europe.

Answer: Russia

Russia is the largest country in the world, a transcontinental country spanning Europe and Asia, with a territory of 17 million km2 (6.6 million sq mi), 147 million inhabitants, bordering 14 countries, and extending across 11 time zones. Its capital is Moscow and the second largest city is Saint Petersburg.

The freshwater Lake Ladoga is the largest lake located entirely in Europe. It has an average surface area of 17,891 km2 (6,907 sq mi) excluding the 660 islands. It has an average depth of 51 m (170 ft) and is about 5 m (17 ft) above sea level. The lake is navigable and forms part of the Volga Baltic Waterway, which connects the Baltic Sea with the Volga River.
2. I'm the smallest country in the world.

Answer: Vatican

The State of the Vatican City is located within the commune of Rome, Italy. The Vatican City has an area of 109 acres (44 ha), and about 453 inhabitants; it is surrounded by a wall that separates it from the city of Rome except at St. Peter's Square. It has its own diplomatic corps, banking system, astronomical observatory, the Swiss Guard, etc. Several impressive buildings are in this area: St. Peter's Basilica, Vatican Palace, museums, and a library.

The country also has privileges over some churches in Rome and in Castel Gandolfo, the Pope's summer residence.

In the 4th century, the Vatican gained control of territory around Rome and served as the capital of the Papal States. The independent sovereignty of the Vatican was recognized in the Lateran Treaty of 1929.
3. In my capital, the Vasa Museum can be visited.

Answer: Sweden

The Kingdom of Sweden is a country located on the Scandinavian Peninsula, and Stockholm has been the capital since 1523. Today Sweden is a constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary democracy. It is the fifth largest country in Europe and has 10.5 million inhabitants. It is a highly developed country, with a high standard of living, health, education, and social equality.

The "Vasa Museum", located in Stockholm displays the almost intact 17th-century warship Vasa, which sank on her maiden voyage in 1628, after sailing roughly 1,300 m (1,400 yds). The ship and its belongings were subject to the destructive force of the sea for three centuries. In the late 1950s, the vessel was located and studies began to bring it to the surface without causing significant damage. In 1961, after 333 years, the Vasa surfaced. It was temporarily housed in the Vasa Shipyard and in 1990, it was permanently transferred to the Vasa Museum.
4. I am the only double-landlocked European country.

Answer: Liechtenstein

Liechtenstein is the only doubly landlocked country in Europe, one of two doubly landlocked countries in the world, the other being Uzbekistan.

The Principality of Liechtenstein is an old microstate located between Austria and Switzerland, in the Alps. Its capital is Vaduz, the official language is German, its population is 39,000. It has an area of 160 km2 (62 sq mi) and one of the highest per-capita incomes in the world. Liechtenstein is a semi-constitutional monarchy, headed by the Prince of Liechtenstein and an elected parliament. The house of Liechtenstein has ruled the country since the 15th century and the family follows the Salic law, which means no female can succeed to the throne.
5. In my capital, you can see the Book of Kells.

Answer: Republic of Ireland

Ireland or the Republic of Ireland consists of 26 of the 32 counties on the Island of Ireland. It borders only Northern Ireland. Its capital and largest city is Dublin. The country has an area of 70,273 km2 (27,133sq mi), and an estimated population of 5 million inhabitants (in 2022). Its currency is the euro, and its official languages are Irish and English.

The Book of Kells is a famous item on display at Trinity College in Dublin. There are doubts about its origin and the date it was completed. It is estimated to be from 800 AD and was housed in the Kells Abbey for a long time. When the abbey was destroyed, the book was brought to Trinity College where it has been since 1661. It was written in Latin, primarily in insular majuscule, on vellum, and on virtually all 680 pages has detailed designs in a wide variety of colors.

Some say it was a work of angels and not of man.
6. I am governed by two co-princes.

Answer: Andorra

The Principality of Andorra is a sovereign landlocked co-principality, located on the Iberian Peninsula, on Pyrenees Mountains, bordered by Spain and France. Its capital is Andorra La Vella, and the official language is Catalan, although Spanish and French are also spoken. Most of the population is Roman Catholic and the currency is the euro, although the principality is not part of the European Union.

It is believed that Andorra was created by Charlemagne, who liberated the region from the Muslims in 803 and placed it under the supervision of the bishop of Urgel. Later on, the administration also became French. The principality came to be headed by two co-princes: the Bishop of Urgel in Catalonia, Spain, and the President of France.

Internally, 28 members are elected to form the General Council of the Valleys, which in fact govern the principality. The constitution, approved in 1993, transferred most power to elected delegates and now the co-princes have a ceremonial role.
7. Thousands of people come here to go to the Polar Arctic Circle and meet Santa Claus.

Answer: Finland

The Republic of Finland is a Nordic country that shares a land border with Sweden, Norway, and Russia, and with the Gulf of Bothnia and the Gulf of Finland. It has an area of 338, 455 km2 (180,678sq mi) and 5.6 million inhabitants. It is officially a bilingual country - Finnish and Swedish - and its currency is the euro. In 1919, a republican constitution was adopted, which was modified several times. It is a unitary parliamentary republic.

The northern region of Finland, Lapland, has a very difficult climate, but it is very popular. Rovaniemi, the capital of Lapland, which was completely destroyed in WWII, has been rebuilt and today has numerous attractions. Since 1985, it is the official Finnish home to Santa Claus in the Arctic. It is said that Santa Claus spends his time year-round in his village, taking care of his errands and welcoming children and adults from all over the world, spreading the Christmas spirit.
8. In this country, it is possible to swim between the Eurasian and North American plates.

Answer: Iceland

Iceland is a Nordic island country, known for its volcanoes, geysers, hot springs, and lava fields. Its capital, Reykjavik, concentrates 36% of the country's 387,800 inhabitants. The official language is Icelandic and its currency is the Icelandic Króna. It is a unitary parliamentary republic with a diversified economy, with an emphasis on the finance, biotechnology, and manufacturing sectors. It has excellent indexes of human development, education, coverage for health, equality, and security.

Earthquakes in the region resulted in the movement of the Eurasian and North American tectonic plate boundaries that converge in Iceland. The plates break apart and the land between subsides. As a result, the oceanic plates and ridges are visible and it is possible to dive into a crevice and place your hands on both plates. For this, just go to the Thingvellir National Park.
9. In my capital, it is possible to appreciate the famous astronomical clock or the Orloj.

Answer: Czech Republic

The Czech Republic, also known as Czechia, is a unitary parliamentary republic with 10.5 million inhabitants (2022). It is a landlocked country bordered by Austria, Germany, Poland, and Slovakia. Its official language is Czech, the currency is the Czech koruna. It has an area of 78,871 km2 (30,452 sq mi). Its capital and largest city is Prague.

In 1410, on the southern side of the Old Town Hall in Prague, the medieval astronomical clock or "The Prague Orloj" was installed. For more than 600 years, the clock has suffered breakdowns and improvements and has been kept in operation. The Orloj is considered a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

It is interesting to stay in the square to wait for the clock to strike and to admire its components. On the sides of the clock, there are several sculptures of Catholic saints. The clock has three main mechanisms: the astronomical dial which primarily displays the position of the sun and moon in the sky; the calendar dial with medallions representing the months; and "The Walk of Apostles", an hourly show of moving apostles and other figures such as a skeleton, representing Death, striking the time. It is very interesting to read about the features of the Orloj.
10. A monster has been said to inhabit one of my lakes.

Answer: Scotland

Scotland is located in the north of Great Britain and is one of the countries that make up the United Kingdom. It shares a land border with England and is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, and the North and Irish Seas. Scotland has around 800 islands, many forming the Hebrides and Northern Isles archipelagos. It has about 5.5 million inhabitants, its capital is Edinburgh and the largest city is Glasgow.

A destination that attracts the attention of children and adults is Loch Ness, where, legend has it, a monster dwells. Loch Ness is a freshwater loch in the Scottish Highlands, the second largest lake by surface area after Loch Lomond. However, due to its great depth (the deepest point is 230 m or 755 feet), it is the largest by volume in Great Britain. Reports of a monster inhabiting Loch Ness date back to antiquity and gained strength in the 1930s, with the publication of reports, in newspapers, of people who came across a monster fish, a sea serpent, or a sea dragon. The monster was named "The Loch Ness Monster", nicknamed "Nessie". Although studies have never proven its existence, the monster remains popular and very profitable for the Scottish economy.
