Thanks. I have a couple of issues. Firstly, Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch isn't a city - it's very small. Secondly, the epithet "The Venice of the North" has been applied to many other cities other than the one you named - for example Bruges, Stockholm, Antwerpen, Birmingham, Bydgoszcz, Alesund, Kobenhaven, Gdansk, Hamburg, Cork, Lubeck, St Petersburg, Wroclaw, Amiens and Strasbourg.
