Top 5 World’s Unusual Places to Propose

St Valentine’s Day is the second best day (according to Chillisauce) to propose to the most important person of your life. It’s rather obvious – romance is very much in the air on the Day of Love. Choosing a place to propose is probably as much important as choosing a wedding ring. Paris, Venice, Juliet’s House in Verona and numerous islands are the most popular travel destinations to ask the most important question of your life. Nevertheless, if you don’t want to say “Will you marry me?” in some kind of ordinary place, here is Top 5 world’s unusual places to propose which you can find with the help of MAPS.ME.

 Taj Mahal (India)


Taj Mahal was built as a symbol of a boundless love of Shah Jahan to his wife Mumtaz Mahal, a persian princess. The strongest feeling inspired the ruler to construct one of the most beautiful buildings in the world. Romantic stories and awesome views generally make us want to be a hero of our own love story, so your Chosen One will definitely agree to spent a whole life with you.


Waitomo Glow Worm Caves (New Zealand)

Waitomo Glow Worm Caves

Dark caves are probably not very romantic places unless it is covered inside with… glow worms! Those creatures flicker mysteriously which turns a dark place into beautiful breathtaking canvas. It’s better than a night sky full of stars, believe us. Amused by such a scene your partner will have no words except YES!


Neuschwanstein Castle (Germany)


If your Beloved likes fairy tales or is fond of stunning views, the perfect place to make a proposal is a Neuschwanstein Castle. Not mentioning the landscape, the castle is so amazing itself, that Walt Disney chose it to be the Sleeping Beauty Castle and later, similar structures. Remember that fairy tales always have a happy end.


Stairway to heaven (Hawaii)

Stairway to heaven

The stairs that ascend up and down the mountains seem as if they would lead the way up to Heaven. Guess what was the reason to name this place as it is. The beauty of the surroundings would blow away anyone’s mind. But be extremely attentive: enter to the Haiku Stairs may be prohibited because of some reconstruction. If you both will climb these long, long stairs, who on Earth would be able to prevent you from living happily ever after like in Heaven? We believe it’s a brilliant place to start your long way together.


Ice Hotel (Sweden)

Ice Hotel

Using 31,000 tonnes of ice and snow from the nearby frozen Torne River, this Ice hotel was one of the first of its kind when it was originally built in 1990. Each year it opens in December before melting away in the middle of April. So you have a wonderful chance to say important words on Feb. 14, until the hotel is gone again. The houses made of ice are as unusual as cold, but that’s where hearts are melting for sure. Besides, if your fiancé(e) agrees to stay with you in such a frozen place for the whole night, why not spending the whole life together? :)
