QUIZ: Name the countries in Europe which contain the letter 'L'
Just the 25 to get...
These quizzes are so easy in theory, yet often so tricky in practise.
There are 25 countries in Europe which contain the letter 'L'. Seeing as that's quite a significant number of countries, we've generously extended your time limit to a whole 10 minutes.
As there is some confusion over whether or not some countries are actually a part of Europe, we have decided on a list of entities that, according to Wikipedia, “fall even partially under any of the various common definitions of Europe, geographically or politically”. With one exception! All of the individual countries in the United Kingdom will be included, meaning the list comprises of 53 countries in total.
We’re assuming, of course, that you’ll refer to this list AFTER the quiz to verify your answers and not before or during the quiz. To be clear, the list DOES NOT include various dependencies or autonomous territories within or in close proximity to Europe. So you can forget about your Gibraltars, your Greenlands, your Faroe Islands or your Isle of Mans here.
The rest of it should be a piece of cake. Should be, but often isn't.
