You Are Here Ornament – Krakow

You Are Here Ornament – Krakow is the second in a row city release from the YAH ornament series. Starbucks has been only releasing country ornaments recently, so it is nice to see that there is more than that. There are certainly many countries that we, collectors, would like Starbucks to come up with the ornaments for, but it won’t hurt if cities are added to the schedule too!
When reviewing the full-sized mug, I didn’t mention the dragon on the right of the front of the mug, so I would like to give it attention now.… 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 – Wrocław

Starbucks You Are Here – Wrocław has also been released past weekend. It makes it the fifth Poland YAH (not counting the Christmas version). Is it me or the latest YAHs are all pretty nice looking, at least the colors used are brighter? I think this is great, it means the designers are still investing time and effort into the You Are Here Collection, even though it is set to be phased out.
Wrocław is the largest city in the historical region of Silesia and is located on the banks of the River Oder.… Read more

You Are Here – Poznań

I could not actually believe my eyes when I saw the message from the blog reader about this release. You Are Here – Poznań pretty much questions my belief on how fast YAHs will be replaced with Been There mugs. It seems that we still have some pretty nice releases ahead of us.
Poznań is the fifth-largest and one of the oldest cities in Poland located on the Warta River in the west-central part of the county. Established in the 10th century it has a rich history and for a long time was an important political and religious center of territories that later formed the Duchy of Poland.… Read more

You Are Here Christmas – Poland

One of the European countries gets Christmas early with the release of Starbucks You Are Here Christmas – Poland. It has just been revealed by a Facebook user today and it seems that the design of the mug and the box are very similar to what we’ve seen last year – white background with gold lines, red handle and a black box. To be honest, I was a little bit skeptical about whether they still keep releasing YAHs for this Holiday Season or switch to the new BT series.… Read more

You Are Here – Warsaw

I somehow missed to add You Are Here – Warsaw mug to the site, even though it was released quite some time ago – in October 2018! And thanks to an attentive reader of this blog, the capital of Poland makes it’s appearance here. Anyway, here are some items from the mug:
– The Royal Castle has served as the official residence of the Polish monarchs for centuries. It is located in the Castle Square, at the entrance to the Warsaw Old Town.… Read more

You Are Here – Krakow

YAH mugs are still in demand in Europe. Brand new release, Starbucks You Are Here Krakow is another example.
From the mug:
Kraków Cloth Hall – was once a major centre of international trade. It is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1978.
St. Mary’s Basilica – one of the best examples of Polish Gothic architecture. Probably the most interesting detail here – its towers are of a different design and height.
Kraków Barbican – a fortified outpost once connected to the city walls
