Hehe! One of the other sentences: "Göteborg är på Toaletten"!! Oh, Duolingo, you are very funny sometimes ;)

We had an earlier sentence: "Hotellet ligger vid kusten", but "göteborg ligger vid västkusten" wasn't accepted here. Can a hotel "ligger vid" but a city has to "ligger på"? Or does it have to do with the general "kusten" vs the specific "Västkusten"?

Is "Göteborg är på Västkusten" also correct?

Not wrong as such, but a little awkward.

Is that right? A capital V on Västkusten?
