Runs fine here.

I think Google Earth wanted to send you a message: go to sleep. It's 3 a.m.

A question to everybody: is there any city or town in your country that is usually called with a name different to the official one?
For example in Italy Reggio nell'Emilia and Reggio di Calabria are always called Reggio Emilia and Reggio Calabria. In Veneto everybody says San Stino di Livenza instead of Santo Stino di Livenza. In 2011 the town of Castello Lavazzo (near the infamous Vajont dam) changed officially its name in Castellavazzo with a referendum because everybody used that name in spoken language.

Apart from nicknames, we also have a few names that are daily speech instead of the official one.

* 's-Gravenhage, better known as Den Haag or The Hague
* 's-Hertogenbosch, Den Bosch is more used but 's-Hertogenbosch is not entirely unused (it's used on trains and road signs)
* Gorinchem. It is pronounced like "Gorkum" by everyone.

For instance Ljubljana. Everybody in Slovenia, (especially inhabitants of Ljubljana) are saying Lublana and not Ljubljana.

i think it's not what are we discussing about. for instance, in the area where i live people have habbit of ommitting last letter "i" in the words. so the village Pisanica is actually Pisan'ca (and whole Croatia except us locals has wrong accent on that toponym ), or even more - Trnovitica is Trnov'ca. but those are only local colloquial pronounciations.

Part of Ljubljana is called Nove Fužine (New Fužine), but everyone calls it just Fužine. However, there is Fužine on the other side of a river. I don't know whether people call it the same or they say "old Fužine" (stare Fužine). Interestingly, "New" in names of other parts of Ljubljana is always used.

Mount Prisojnik in the Julian Alps is called Prisank by locals. I'm not sure both names are official. Same with Mangart/Mangrt.

They do the same thing, they combine words, "droping" letters

Btw, we must ask Hofburg how he calls Nova Gorica

In Romania we have a city called Drobeta Turnu Severin, but people don't say it's entire name, but only Drobeta, only Severin or Turnu Severin.

No, they say Horica. But then, they always say H instead of G (like some other Slavic nations).

I live close to a part of Ljubljana called Selo (Village ), but luckily I've never heard anyone use it. There are some other parts of the city that I've never heard their names used, like London, Sibirija, or Kosovo Polje.
