My Favorite Unfortunate European City Names…Don’t Read Any Further Grandma

Unfort Cities

It’s been a tough week and sometimes laughter is the best medicine.  If you are one of our regular readers you appreciate that I have a quirky taste for the odd and unusual.  I also like to collect things and I have a love of maps.

Having said that I have always looked for the oddest place names and kept up with them.  Here are the top list of ‘Most Unfortunate European City Names’.

If you drove really fast and get some speed boats you could visit Wetwang, Twatt, and Shitterton in the same day.
