The Longest Place Name in Europe

On the island of Anglesey off the north-west coast of Wales, just across Menai Strait, lies a small village with a big name: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch or Llanfairpwll in short.

With 58 characters, it is the longest place name in Europe and the second longest one-word place name in the world.
