15. I remembered this one, because it was on Jeopardy.

It was Final Jeopardy. I didn't get it.

Fikkle Fame: Final Jeopardy

Final Jeopardy: World Capitals

by VJ · March 13, 2014

The Final Jeopardy question (3/13/2014), in the category “World Capitals” was:

At 4,000 miles, the farthest apart capitals of bordering countries are these 2 cities, one on a peninsula.
Only ONE of the contestants got Final Jeopardy! right.

WHAT ARE MOSCOW AND PYONGYANG?

“Russia and North Korea share a 17 km border along the Tumen River. The border was created when Russia gained the territory of Outer Manchuria from China in the treaties of Aigun and Beijing in 1858 and 1860.” (North Korea-Russia border)

“There is a direct sleeping-car between Moscow and Pyongyang in North Korea twice a month provided by the North Korean Railways, and in addition there are two direct Russian sleeping-cars 4 times a month from Moscow to the North Korean border at Tumangan, with an onward connection to Pyongyang.” (Train Travel to North Korea)
