Sent to: Netherlands & Scotland

Mijdrecht, Netherlands: The main street is the area around the Dorpstraat, where most shops and the cityhouse are located. There is a police office, a fire department, 6 supermarkets, sport facilities, and a coffee shop. Though, there is no police or doctor in the weekends.   — Wikipedia

It had not previously qualified for the record because it did not have a full postal address.  — Wikipedia
