I'm trying to figure out why the cities on the Nordic Countries board come in two sizes. I don't think the large circles are for capitols. Is this just a reference to the major metropolitan cities? I can't find any explanation in the rulebook about why there are different sized city markers.

I know it's a minor issue, but it's bugging me.

It seems to me there are 5 big cities on the map: the 4 capital cities and Bergen which was a county of its own in TtR time. It was also one of the biggest cities of Scandinavia. It was even a capital in the 13th century.
But of course it can be a mistake as well.

Thanks for the insight! I had noticed this earlier and thought it had something to do with capital cities, but Bergen just didn't seem to fit in.

How about Tallinn? I guess it was not acknowledged as an independent country by Russia until 1920, after the 1918 Independence Manifesto. Is that just a few years too late for TtR time?

Yup, TtR time seems to be something like 1910-1914 based on the expansions etc.

According to the back side of the tickets, the game features "Father Christmas tour 1910".
