I just can't resist this

Isn't this the most amazing tiny castle that you have ever seen? It's called Swallow's Nest and it's located in Crimea overlooking the Black Sea. It really is tiny at just 20m by 10m, but the original design envisioned a foyer, guest room, stairway to the tower, and two bedrooms on two different levels within the tower. It was built around 1911 or 1912 by Baron von Steinheil.

Wouldn't this be the most romantic, perfect Valentines getaway? Just you and your lover, locked away in a castle on the cliff. Just a well stocked picnic basket and tons of candles to keep you company. Can you just imagine the fantastic sunrises and sunsets from the wraparound observation deck.

I heart castles.

They are just so romantic.
