Fun Fact

The longest place name on the planet is 85 letters long.

People who live in Mamungkukumpurangkuntjunya Hill, Australia, need a little patience when it comes to learning to spell their hometown's name. But you know what? So do the folks from Lake Chargoggagoggman-chauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg in Massachusetts and Tweebuffelsmeteen-skootmorsdoodgeskietfontein, South Africa.


None of them have quite as much work to do when jotting down their address as those who live in Taumatawhakatangihanga-koauauotamateaturipukakapikimaung-ahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu, New Zealand, though. At 85 letters long, this is the longest place name in the world.


History Fact

The Leaning Tower of Pisa was never straight.

Known worldwide for its four degrees lean, this freestanding bell tower was constructed in the 12th century.

When construction on the second story started, due to the unstable ground it was built on, the tower started to lean.


After this, the lean only increased as the construction process went on, and it went on to become more iconic than the tower itself!

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King won all 11 Academy Awards it was nominated for.
