Let's collect useful (for the contest) data about Europe in this thread. I thought I might share this with you, since I spent a while searching for such a list. A page with data, including coordinates, for practically every town and region on Earth, excluding the USA and Antarctica: http://earth-info.nga.mil/gns/html/cntry_files.html. I checked and it contains my old home town, a town with 10000 inhabitants in Finland. It's probably obvious, but I'll just remind that Wikipedia contains a lot of information about European countries and cities.
