This word search features 25 European capital cities hidden in a grid…and your job – shall you choose to accept it – is to find them!
But there are more than 25 countries in Europe…
Yes, there are more than 25 countries in Europe. This list of 25 European capital cities is not inclusive: there are more capitals in Europe than 25.

- and many more…
What I found interesting researching this puzzle is that the number of countries in Europe differed depending on the reference. Some references said 44, some said 50. The most astute answer that I could find about this discrepancy was from NationsOnline.org who stated that there are 44 sovereign nations in Europe, but the area of Europe is shared by 50 countries.
