Traveling To Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch

traveling
Traveling in Wales today on the island of Anglesey, we passed by the place in Europe with the longest name and one of the longest place names in the world.

The railway station in Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch is hard to pass by without stopping and many travelers do, as well as the local post office where they can get their passports stamped. Those 58 letters sure caught our attention so we stopped for a photo.

How do you say that?



The longest place name in the world?

Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu at 85 letters is a hill on North Island, New Zealand.
