The Welsh language, which is spoken in Wales, is home to Europe’s longest place name, “Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.” This village is situated on the island of Anglesey in North Wales, and its name translates to “St. Mary’s Church in the hollow of the white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the church of St. Tysilio near the red cave.” The name was coined in the 19th century as a publicity stunt to draw visitors to the village, and it remains a popular tourist destination. Though it can be quite challenging to pronounce, it is a source of pride for many Welsh speakers who take pride in their language and culture.
