similar as Pula. there was settlement Iadera probably older than Pharos itself, but no written proves. (if we would consider those settlments valid, then Vinkovci would take the victory)

I don't think there need to be written proofs, but I doubt Vinkovci has been continuously inhabited for 8,000 years. Emona (Roman Ljubljana) was established in year 15 (54 years before Poetovio), but it was later abandoned, so modern Ljubljana was first mentioned in 1144 (although Wikipedia says 1112-1125). I wonder about Zadar though.

In Italy Rome was founded on 753 B.C., although Messina and Cagliari may be older (they are both from 8th century B.C.).

I knew you replaced the c with a cyrillic с (es), since that village suffers from the Scunthorpe problem here. Anyway, that f***ing village is not a municipality, so the twinnig would have to be with Tarsdorf. But somehow I see more fitting a twinning of Pula with Polla, Italy.

Similarly, you can't write the Slovenian town "Šmartno ob Pаki" (Šmartno on Paka (river)) with only Latin letters (I had to use the Cyrillic "a"), because "Pаki" is a derogatory term for a Pakistani.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/****_(slur)

They say that it's a derogatory term used in the UK to refer to people from Indian subcontinent. I think it's probably very offensive for Indians to be grouped with Pakistani.
EDIT: It also censores the Wikipedia link.

Another censored word is 'nigg-ardly', that means 'miserly', but it turns into *****rdly on SSC because it contains the racial slur.

Google search autocomplete also censores anything related with sexuality or racism, when you type something.
This leads to bizzarre results: for example it doesn't give any suggestions if you type 'Montenegro', because it contains the racial slur.
In the Italian version, it doesn't give suggestions if you type 'Troia' (the ancient Greek city or the modern village in Apulia), because in Italian it means 'sl*t' or 'wh*re'.

That still gets censored in the mobile app, as it ignores the text size tags.

You can still get the correct link by replacing a letter with its unicode pointer, like the fix I've done to your link. I first tested this with the Austrian village. Oh, and always replace ) with %29, as otherwise it's not included in the link.

Zadar and Pula were definitely first urban settlements, or cities. this what was in Vinkovci was a colony. it is little bit hard to imagine settlments from those times, but i am having imagination of those colonies as collection of cottages, something like Smurfs' village

but Zadar and Pula were definitely the oldest urban settlements, so cities. in Pula there were found archaeological sites (you can see one part near Porta d'Oro in city centre). in Zadar they say that the ruins of old city are 3 metres deep under today's surface.

This should be also considered when it comes to censoring

I would add some more:
"Nice country, Czechoslovakia"
"I like Slovenian Alps"
"You do have hot tap water, don't you?"

My father inlaw has just changed the VERY old oil heating system out with a new heatpump. His house is 120 m2. The cost of installation and everything was DKK 100 000 and he got a 50' TV from Panasonic with in the deal. It is a lot of money though.

Italy: I love pasta with ketchup

Funny thing, a Slovak expat I meet here was surprised when he came here and found out Italians don't like pasta with ketchup.

I think Polish, Hungarian, and Welsh names are the most difficult in Europe to spell and pronounce.

I must admit that I did not know that before I'd first time seen that picture either If you have pasta here, there is a strong possibility it will be with ketchup.

I'd add "Gibraltar español" for the UK. My dad once asked me where in England is Scotland .

Actually Basque place names aren't that strange. I concur with italystf in that Polish and Welsh placenames are the hardest in both spelling and pronounciation, to the point I think the Polish city named Lodz should be called "Woodge" in English to match its local pronounciation.
