It seems one couple's love knows no heights after they were seen walking on the top of an industrial-sized crane.

Pictured 120 metres above the ground, the plucky pair are seen casually strolling along the length of the crane before taking a selfie together in front of a stunning city landscape.

Daring Angela Nicolau, 21, and Alexander Remnev, 20, came up with the crazy idea after scouring their city of Moscow for the most romantic view in town.

But it was only after discovering the development of a new 27-storey office block, called Oruzheiny, that the young Russians pounced on the chance to get the ultimate sunset view.

Luckily, neither of the couple suffers from the fear of heights and in fact it was through their love of danger that the pair first met.

Known as The Crazy Russians, both Alexander and Angela are part of a team of roof-top climbers that free climb without a harness in sight.

Alexander said: "We both love heights and it was through our love of 'roofing' that we first met.

"We love just sitting together and gazing out at the city, it's an amazing experience to share with another person.

"Roofing is our passion so we don't worry about one another but of course I look out for Angela.

"We climbed up a few storeys of the building to begin with but we thought we'd go higher after noticing the crane.

"We were a little afraid at first but as soon as we saw the sunset we were just both overwhelmed by the view."
