Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Founded in 1525; financial hub of Central America

Answer: San Salvador

The largest, and capital city, of El Salvador, San Salvador was founded by the Spanish conquistador, Pedro de Alvarado. There is evidence of an earlier settlement nearby, the capital city (Cuzcatlan) of the indigenous people. The city houses the majority of the country's legal and government institutions.
2. Sits at the confluence of the River Klang and River Gombak in the Klang Valley

Answer: Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur is the capital of Malaysia and is located in a federated territory within the state of Selangor on the country's main peninsula. The Klang Valley is defined geographically by the Straits of Malacca to the west and the Titiwangsa Mountains to the east and has significant urban settlements, the largest of which is Kuala Lumpur. The name 'Kuala Lumpur' comes from the Malay for "muddy confluence".
3. Caribbean island capital named for the river on which it stands

Answer: Roseau

As well as being the capital, Roseau is the main port of Dominica. The first European settlers were French, and the name of Roseau derives from the reeds which grow along the river banks.
4. Sits opposite the city of Salé close to the mouth of the Bou Regreg river

Answer: Rabat

Rabat is the capital city of Morocco and is one of the four imperial cities of Morocco that have all been capital at some point in the area's history - the others being Marrakesh, Fez and Meknes. Rabat is located in the north-east of the country, on both the Atlantic coast and the Bou Regreg river, which flows for around 240 kilometres (150 miles) down to the coast from the Atlas mountains.
5. This capital is more of a town than a city and can be found on Pohnpei Island

Answer: Palikir

Pohnpei Island is one of the 600 or so islands that make up the Federated States of Micronesia, an archipelago in the Pacific Ocean. Palikir was chosen as the site of a purpose-built capital after the country gained its independence from the United States in 1979 and was finally declared as such ten years later. It is a considerably smaller settlement than both other towns on Pohnpei, such as Kolonia, as well as the city of Weno on Moen Island in the Chuuk Lagoon.
6. Former member of Hanseatic League; located on estuary of the Daugava river

Answer: Riga

Latvia's capital, Riga dates back to 1201. It lies on the Gulf of Riga, and has the claim to fame of being the largest city in the Baltic area. The other two Baltic countries are Estonia and Lithuania, with their capitals being Tallin and Vilnius respectively.

The centre of Riga has a long history, and it was granted World Heritage Site status in 1997. The city was also joint European Capital of Culture in 2014, with the Swedish city of Umea.
7. Located in a valley of the Tuul River; originally a Buddhist monastic centre

Answer: Ulaanbaatar

Officially, the city became Ulaanbaatar in 1924 as the capital of the new Mongolian People's Republic. Prior to that many names had been used, such as Orgoo and Khuree. In addition, over the years the city moved locations 28 times. In 2018 the thriving city is home to about 40% of Mongolia's population.
8. A capital city that entirely surrounds another country's capital city

Answer: Rome

Italy's capital city, Rome, is located in the Lazio region and contains another whole country - the city state of the Vatican and home of the Roman Catholic church. It is one of the oldest cities in the world, having been the base of the Roman Empire and still has remnants of its ancient architecture available for both its own population and the hordes of tourists who go there each year to see.
9. Located on Cape Verde Peninsula

Answer: Dakar

Dakar was firstly the capital of French West Africa in 1902, and the capital of the Mali Federation in 1959-1960. It is now the capital of Senegal. This harbour city is reportedly the busiest port in West Africa. Though the city is very urban and industrial, visitors should not be surprised to see goats wandering freely.
10. On Faxa Bay, the earliest settlement on the site dates from AD 870

Answer: Reykjavik

Iceland's capital city is situated further north than any other country's capital. Early settlements at the location date back to Norse times, although it was more of a trading post than a city even in the nineteenth century. It was officially given the status of a town in 1786 and is by far the larges city on the island.
