You Are Here – Budapest

Alright, new mug from You Are Here series is coming from Europe. As you can see this is Budapest, which is a capital and the biggest city of Hungary. In the year 1873 three towns on the banks of the river River Danube (Buda, Óbuda (Old Buda) and Pest) were merged together to form Budapest. These are sights from this city seen on the mug:
Buda Castle – is a historical palace completed in 1265 which is a part of the Budapest World Heritage Site
Millennium Underground Railway aka Line 1 (Budapest Metro) – is the oldest subway line in mainland Europe
Hungarian Parliament Building – one of Europe’s oldest legislative buildings and a popular tourist destination. It was completed in 1904. Interesting fact: this is still the tallest building in Budapest.
Hősök tere (Heroes’ Square) – another World Heritage Site well known for it’s complex featuring the Seven Chieftains of the Magyars and other important national leaders, as well as the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

Please note, the mug is already available for sale in Starbucks coffee houses in Budapest. If you have no plans going to Hungary anytime soon, you can buy it online, see here.
