Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch - Longest place name in the world

I was at wikipedia doing random clicking and reading. It's actually fun to do so, give a try. You will be surprise of things that you will come across. So, on that day, I was clicking around and landed up at this page. It's about a place in UK which claim to have the longest name in the world. It called "Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch". It is in Welsh and in english it means " St Mary's Church in a hollow of white hazel near  the swirling whirlpool of the church of St Tysilio with a red cave ". Soon it became a tourist attraction where people get down from a train to take picture next to the signboard etc. It's not everyday you get to see that long of a sign board. Pretty Smart yeh!
