Scheveningen, near the Hague. Only the Dutch can truly pronounce the name of this town.
In World War Two, the word Scheveningen was used as a password by the Dutch to detect 
German spies, because no German could pronounce it quite correctly. Not being able to
pronounce this word precisely in the 1940's could result in a person being shot.
