Zzyzx (California)

We are in California, in the Mojave Desert . In its origins, it was a military post of the US Army that they abandoned in the 19th century. It was transformed into a rest area and food supply for those who entered the desert towards the coast. With the passage of time it was totally abandoned. It is the last town in the world in alphabetical order.


Å (Norway)

And if the previous one was the last, now we go to the first. It is called Å (stream in Norwegian) and is found in the Lofoten Islands . It is a place as small as its name, a fishing village with cod as a great source of work.


Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch (Wales)

Here we do risk it. Will it be well written? How do you pronounce? This town is on the island of Anglesey and its translation is no less short: "Church of St. Mary in the hollow of the white hazelnut near a fast whirlwind and the church of St. Tisilo near the red grotto."


Ittoqqortoormiit (Greenland)

This town can only be reached by helicopter or boat , and not all year round. It is near the mouth of the Kangertittivaq fjord. Its name means "big house".


Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu (New Zealand)

And although it is not a town but a hill , we could not close this review with the longest place name in the world, according to the Guinness Book of Records. It is in New Zealand and its translation also has crumbs: "The top where Tamatea, the man with the big knees, the mountain climber, the eater of land, the tireless traveler, played his flute to a loved one."
