When you’re on holiday in certain corners of Europe or the British Isles, it’s often easy to imagine you’ve taken a wrong turn and ended up in the pages of a JRR Tolkien novel.
After all Erebor (the mountain where Tolkien’s dragon Smaug lives) really doesn’t sound THAT different from Eredine (a place in Scotland, where no dragons live).
So can YOU tell the difference between real-world cities and famous towns and those from fantasy books, films and TV shows?
To spice things up a little, we’ve picked some rather odd real-world place names (but they are all absolutely real, we promise you).
Our 15-question multiple-choice quiz starts off pretty easily, with some fairly recognisable places both here on Planet Earth, and from the realms of fiction.
But as you go on, it gets trickier and trickier: try your luck to see if you’re a master of factual and fictional cities!
