FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Welcome to Llanfairpwllgwyngyll, the longest place name in Europe” – below is their description.
#Llanfairpwllgwyngyll (short version) is a large village and local government community on the island of #Anglesey, #Wales. At 58 letters, #Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwyllllantysiliogogogoch is the #longest #town name in all of #Europe. It wasn’t always the town’s name, though—in the 1860s, the name was developed as a way to entice tourists to make the town a stop on their travels. It’s an amalgamation of the Welsh words and names for local landmarks.FRANCE 24 English YouTube Channel
