Love nests not only on Valentine's Day
It is Valentine’s Day – the day dedicated to lovers. According to the legend, today’s Valentine’s Day got its name from the priest Valentin of Rome. The Christian Valentin married couples, despite the prohibition by emperor Claudius II. Legend tells that the marriages concluded by him continued “under a lucky star”. Because of his Christian belief, Valentin was executed on 14th February 269 by the king’s command.
It is said that Valentin brought flowers from his garden to the weddings, which is why still today flowers are top of the Valentine’s Day present list for the loved ones. But instead of giving flowers, how about spending time together during a visit at a sustainable hotel? Green Pearls® provides tipps for romantic places worldwide.

In Italy, where the Valentine’s Day originates, couples meet on Valentine’s Day on bridges to install “love locks” engraved with their initials and dates. Together, they throw the key into the water and make a wish. A nice tradition!
