You Are Here – Innsbruck

After getting multiple messages about the release of Starbucks You Are Here Innsbruck mug, I have no choice but to add it to the site immediately. In fact, it’s not very often we get to see the new mug from the collection that is being discontinued since 2018. Innsbruck makes it the fifth (including the Christmas version) mug from Austria. On a side note, it is 474th YAH, if my calculations are correct.
The mug has a colorful, simple yet eye-catching design which will please the true fans of this series.… Read more

You Are Here – Rome

Here’s an interesting release from Italy! Starbucks You Are Here – Rome makes it the fourth mug from this country (after Italy, Milan and Turin).
Similar to other Italian mugs, this release was timed to the opening of the new Starbucks store, this time in Rome. After doing some small research, I can see that it was supposed to be opened back in 2020, then in 2021. Two years later, this finally has happened yesterday (April 7, 2022).… Read more

You Are Here Disney – Disneyland Paris 2

The rumors about the release of the anniversary edition mug, namely You Are Here Disney – Disneyland Paris 2 have been confirmed by the pictures of the actual mug that is now available for sale in the Disney Village. The good news is that the Disney Village is located outside of the parks, so you don’t have to buy tickets to get this special edition item. On the other hand, it was confirmed that the first (regular) version of the Disneyland Paris is still available in store.… Read more

You Are Here – Montpellier

Starbucks You Are Here – Montpellier might be one of the last mugs from the YAH collection. Montpellier is a city in southern France close to the Mediterranean Sea. This location made it an important municipality of the Crown of Aragon in the 13th century. Montpellier is home to one of the oldest universities in the world – Université de Montpellier, which was established in 1220.
The front of the mug showcases La Fontaine des Trois Graces (The Three Graces Fountain) from La Place de la Comédie.… Read more

You Are Here – Hulun Buir

Starbucks You Are Here – Hulun Buir makes it the 81st YAH mug from Zhongguo (the Middle Kingdom in Mandarin, a.k.a China), and that’s not counting the Christmas Edition mugs.
Hulun Buir, located in Inner Mongolia (autonomous region of the PRC), is probably the least populous and the northernmost Chinese region that got the mug. This region is governed as a prefecture-level city and that makes it one of the biggest cities in the world by area (though very uncrowded).… Read more

You Are Here – Euskadi

Here’s an interesting release for a country within a country. Officially, it is the Basque Autonomous Community, but probably a more common name is “The Basque Country”. Starbucks chose to use the local (Basque) name for the mug, hence the title is You Are Here Euskadi.
Speaking of the language, it is very important to note, that the Basque language (Euskera) is not related to Romance languages (Latin) like Spanish or French, and is one of the oldest languages that are being spoken today.… Read more

You Are Here – Gdańsk

This is the second Polish mug from the last week’s release, Starbucks You Are Here – Gdańsk, which also has a very pleasant colorful design. Gdańsk is located on the Baltic coast and is Poland’s principal seaport. Together with the cities of Gdynia and the resort town of Sopot, it forms a metropolitan area called the Tricity.
The front of the mug showcases the most famous landmark of the city – Żuraw, which is an old city gate and port crane, the largest of its kind in Europe.… Read more

You Are Here – Szczecin

Starbucks continues to spoil us with YAH releases. Two new Poland mugs were spotted in stores last week. Here’s the first of them: You Are Here Szczecin. This is the mug for the country’s major seaport and seventh-largest city. I like the recent European mugs a lot for their colors. Szczecin is not an exception. It showcases the views of the Old Town (Stare Miasto) situated on the left bank of the Oder river. It is the oldest historical district in the city.… Read more

You Are Here – Nha Trang

Thanks to a Facebook friend, I can finally share the pictures of You Are Here – Nha Trang with you. As you can see, the other sides of the mug continue the soft colors design pattern, which is meant to represent the relaxing atmosphere of the coastal resort city, which Nha Trang is. Here are some activities that you should try or places to visit when in the city:
– National Oceanographic Museum of Vietnam was opened in 1922 and has more than 20,000 live and preserved specimens of local marine life.… Read more

You Are Here – Karlovy Vary

I suspect that Starbucks You Are Here Karlovy Vary mug was planned a long time ago, but considering the circumstances, this release was delayed. I very much like this nice design with soft colors and certain bright red spots. Those symbolize the fall colors of the mountains that surround the city and also the red roofs of its buildings.
Karlovy Vary is the most visited spa town in the Czech Republic with numerous hot springs. The German name of the city is Karlsbad and it had a mostly German-speaking population till 1945,
Here are some points of interest that designers of the mug were inspired by:
– The front of the mug showcases the historical buildings of the city.… Read more
