Bratislava is the capital and the largest city in Slovakia. The city got its contemporary name in 1919 and it was known under its German name, Pressburg, or Hungarian name Pozsony, before that. Interestingly enough it was the capital of the Kingdom of Hungary between 1536 and 1783.
The design of the mug is dedicated to the architecture of the city:
– Grassalkovich Palace a.k.a Presidential Palace is the official seat of the president of Slovakia. It was built in 1760 in Rococo (late Baroque) style
– Bratislava Castle is the rectangular building with four corner towers. The castle is located on the hill directly above the Danube river in the middle of the city. It is a well-known symbol of Bratislava due to its size and location. It provides excellent views of Bratislava, Austria, and even Hungary on clear days.
– The Roland Fountain. a.k.a. Maximilian Fountain is one of the city’s landmarks. It is located in the Old Town, on the Main Square.
– Slavín is a memorial monument constructed between 1957 and 1960 at the military cemetery.
