You Are Here – Slovakia

Starbucks You Are Here – Slovakia mug is an interesting release in a sense that it was only recently that I’ve added ornament and icon for this country. To add more, this was version 2 of the icon. Who knew the YAH will come that fast! See more at the ornament page, but basically these are the major elements from the mug:
– Bratislava Castle – the castle in the Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia.
– The Slovak National Uprising Bridge in Bratislava, a.k.a.… Read more

You Are Here – Hungary

This is Starbucks You Are Here – Hungary mug and it took Starbucks four months to come up with the regular version of the previously released Holiday Edition. Yes, it’s one of those rare cases when the Christmas version appeared first. Here’s what I see on the mug:
– Nine-holed Bridge – is an arch bridge built between 1827 and 1833 in a Classical style. It is the longest road stone bridge in historic Hungary.
– The Nonius is a Hungarian horse breed generally dark in color.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Cyprus

Starbucks You Are Here Ornament – Cyprus is a very nice looking mini mug with the blue being the most used color. The string is also light blue. And it’s no wonder, because blue and white are the national colors of Cyprus, which you can find everywhere on the island: from the national flag to multiple white houses with blue rooftops along the coast.
The history of Cyprus, recorded through archaeological finds, myths and later written history, can be traced through 9,000 years.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Greece

Here’s Starbucks You Are Here Ornament Greece which is a copy of the bigger mug, just smaller and with the string, which is one of the shades of green (the avocado or fern green). These are some elements from the mug: sun, mountains, olive tree, Temple of Apollo (Ancient Corinth). The last, but not the least is the amphora – Achilles slaying Penthesilea, signed by Exekias, c. 530 BCE. It is now stored in the British Museum, London.
As a reminder, there was also the Christmas Edition of the full-size mug.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Bulgaria

The release of You Are Here Ornament – Bulgaria tells me, that I underestimated the amount of minis coming out this year. Not only bigger markets like Germany are getting new releases, we’re seeing Slovakia, Romania and Bulgaria joining the party as well. We can only wish that all European mugs are “minimized”, but it’s up to Starbucks marketing department to decide.
Here’s the full-sized version of this mug, same design was used for the ornament. The string is lime green.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Germany

There was a confusing delay in releasing more ornaments from Europe, but today, we finally see the Starbucks You Are Here Ornament Germany making its appearance in stores. Apparently, the releases will happen in batches, so we can expect other minis coming out soon.
All I can add, this ornament is a copy of a bigger mug. The string color is brown, or to be more specific, walnut (I am not a colorist though).… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Romania

There will definitely be more than 10 new ornaments this season. Why? My assumption is, we’re going to get the regular versions of all Christmas Edition minis, plus other countries as well. We’ve already seen Slovakia and here’s another one: You Are Here Ornament – Romania. Since this is a complete copy of the regular mug, please check this post for a full review. … Read more
