Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Calais, Rouen and Biarritz

Answer: France

France is the third largest country in Europe. It borders practically every other country on the Western European mainland which adds an interesting array of cultural experiences around the country. Some of the many wonderful treasures of France, such as the Eiffel Tower, da Vinci's Mona Lisa which is on display in the Louvre, and the Musée d'Orsay which houses the largest collection of Impressionist and post-Impressionist paintings in the world, are located in the country's capital, Paris. If your tastes run to wine, wine and more wine, you could always pop over to Bordeaux or the Loire Valley. If you'd rather be at the beach, there is always Nice, St. Tropez or Cannes (anyone up for a film festival?) in southern France on the Mediterranean coast. You'll be spoiled for choice.
2. Bilzen, Ypres and Verviers

Answer: Belgium

Belgium is one of the low countries situated on the North Sea coast. It is the home of many fine buildings constructed in the Art Nouveau style due to the influence of Belgian architects such as Paul Hankar and Victor Horta. The European Commission and the Council of the European Union are located in Brussels, the de facto capital of the European Union.

The Grand Place, which is the central square of Brussels, was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1998. And don't forget to start your morning with a hearty helping of delicious Belgian waffles to get you through the day.
3. Apeldoorn, Zwolle and Haarlem

Answer: The Netherlands

The Netherlands is another low country, 27 percent of which is below sea level. Amsterdam is the country's capital and is a city not to be missed on the grand tour of Europe. Along with its extensive canal system, bicycles dominate the mode of travel in this country. Watching thousands of cyclists navigate the streets during rush hour is a thing of beauty. Museums, such as the Rijksmuseum and the van Gogh Museum, will captivate even the most weary museum-goer.

When you need a break from the touristy bits, there's always Heineken and bitterballen.
4. Cologne, Dusseldorf and Augsburg

Answer: Germany

After the reunification of Germany following the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, Berlin became, once again, the country's capital. The remains of the Berlin Wall, the Brandenburg Gate and Museum Island are on my list of "must see" attractions. Neuschwanstein Castle, Cologne Cathedral and the Black Forest are also on the list of Germany's top tourist spots. If you're a lover of fine cars (and who isn't?), you could always visit the Mercedes Benz Museum in the city of Stuttgart.

It is sure to delight.
5. Innsbruck, Graz and Salzburg

Answer: Austria

Vienna, the capital, is a mecca for lovers of the art of Gustav Klimt with the Belvedere Palace Museum housing the most extensive collection of his works. Other tourist attractions in Vienna are the Schönbrunn Palace, the Spanish Riding School and the Vienna State Opera House. If you prefer athletics over the arts, Austria also boasts many fine ski resorts including Kitzbühel, St. Anton am Arlberg and Zell am See.

A little (or a lot, if you prefer) après ski never hurt anyone!
6. St. Gallen, Zug and Montreux

Answer: Switzerland

Another alpine nation, Switzerland also boasts incredible ski resorts such as Zermatt and St. Moritz. While Bern is the capital, Zurich is the largest city where you would be able to arrange a boat ride on Lake Zurich or visit the Swiss National Museum. Geneva, the country's second largest city, is home to the iconic Jet d'Eau fountain and, for something to warm the cockles of any horologist's heart, the Patek Philippe Museum.
7. Monza, Asti and Cremona

Answer: Italy

There isn't much to say about Italy that hasn't already been said but I'll give it a go. The entire country is a treasure - from the Colosseum in Rome to the Uffizi Gallery in Florence; from the Grand Canal and the Biennale in Venice to Fashion Week in Milan; from the Amalfi Coast to Tuscany, there is no shortage of tourist attractions. "Where to begin?" is the $64,000 question.
8. Zaragoza, Cadiz and Santander

Answer: Spain

Ah, beautiful Spain. So much to see, so little time. From the Bay of Biscay in the north to the Mediterranean in the south, there is something to suit every traveller's taste. If you're interested in the works of Antoni Gaudi, there is no better place to see his work than in Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia and Spain's second largest city. Madrid, the largest city and capital, is also the third largest city in the European Union.

The Prado Museum will entertain you for a very, very long time. And, if you like to be outdoors, you might consider undertaking the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage.

The original Camino starts in St. Jean Pied de Port, a French market town in the Pyrenees, and ends in Santiago de Compostela although there are a variety of other routes which may suit depending on the amount of time the traveller has available. Time to dust off the hiking boots methinks.
9. Dingle, Clones, Cobh

Answer: Ireland

You could start your tour of Ireland at the Guinness Brewery in Dublin, however, you might not be in a fit state to continue if you do. Or you could pop into Trinity College for a wee read of the Book of Kells. Don't fancy that? How about a tour around the jawdroppingly-beautiful Ring of Kerry? Or perhaps a trip to the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare - not for the faint of heart.

There is no shortage of things to keep a tourist busy on the Emerald Isle. And when you've had enough and want to put your feet up at the end of the day, Paddy whiskey is the perfect companion. Sláinte!
10. Lisburn, Swansea and Perth

Answer: United Kingdom

The islands which make up the UK are as varied and as rich in history and culture as anywhere on the planet. London has existed for thousands of years and the Museum of London has an exquisite collection of artifacts which document the history of the City. If your interests extend to Roman ruins, you need look no further than the UK.

The ruins dot the landscape and you are sure to not be disappointed. If, on the other hand, you prefer amusement parks, then the Oblivion roller-coaster at Alton Towers in Stoke-on-Trent should keep your blood moving at a fairly rapid rate! If the bonnie glens of the Highlands are what floats your boat, just keep heading north, perhaps followed by a jaunt over the sea to Skye.

There's something for everyone on these islands, and then some.
