Can You Name the Country from Its Largest City by Population?
by Jouviane Alexandre

Calling all international travelers! We're going around the world with this quiz! From the thousands of cities located on the globe, there are quite a few that are known for being the largest in the world. Can you pair the country with its largest city?

When you think about the entire globe, it's almost shocking to realize that there are 197 countries! While you could probably only name half of them on a good day, you can't forget the others. Every country is going to have its own largest cities, but when you come across countries like China, Russia, and the United States, you can be sure that they have a few cities that fall in the top 100. 

Luckily for you, you won't have to worry about that today! Rather than focusing on all the largest countries in the world, you only need to worry about one per country!

Europe has Istanbul and Moscow, but can you pinpoint them to their actual country? Traveling over to North America, you'd find Toronto and New York City. A trip to Shanghai would find you in the largest metro area with over 34 million people.

Many of these cities are flooded with millions and millions of people. Traveling through six of the continents, could you pinpoint the location of some of the world's largest cities?

We're traveling around the world with this quiz! Will you be piloting this plane or will you be stuck at check-in?

Let's find out!
