I can only imagine how this Italian town got its name….

Bastardo IT

This is a town in Denmark.  I’m not sure I want to comment on it……

Are you a Batman fan?  There’s a town in Turkey just for you!  (No kidding!)

This town in Wales holds the record (with 58 characters) for the longest place name in Europe and the second longest official one-word place name (after a Maori town in New Zealand with 85 characters) in the world.  It’s worth taking the train there just for this picture!
