Longest place name in the world

What is the longest place name in the world? You have to go for Wales for that. The name? Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. This has 58 letters. The name is Welsh for "St Mary's church in the hollow of the white hazel near to the rapid whirlpool and the church of St Tysilio of the red cave" Go to the railway station and you get the sign below. The line under it gives the correct English pronunciation. Well... try saying it! They even have their own website with the same long name! Try remembering that without bookmarks!
