Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch is a large village in the island of Anglesey off the coast of wales. You can listen that name pronounced here. It has the longest name for a place in Europe and one of the longest in the world. The name means: [St.] Mary's Church (Llanfair) [in] the hollow (pwll) of the white hazel (gwyngyll) near (goger) the rapid whirlpool (y chwyrndrobwll) [and] the church of [St.] Tysilio (llantysilio) with a red cave ([a]g ogo goch). People commonly refer to it as Llanfair PG in everyday parlance. A common tourist activity is to have their picture photographed in front of the city name. Here are two Royal Enfields in front of it.
