Good try. You have a lot of trouble distinguishing most of the buildings we showed in our quiz. Maybe architecture just isn't for you or it might be time to start up an intensive world tour visiting each and every place on this trip. Adding in a few dozen extras might not be a bad idea. Or, you could just watch a lot of documentaries if travel isn't the thing for you. Good luck next time.

You may not know all of the famous buildings, or have trouble telling the similar ones apart, but you have a good knowledge base. Maybe it is time to plan another trip to get to know some more places.
