    Seen from the edge of the River Vltava, the city's great bridge appears prominently, with the orange roofs of the buildings below the castle nestled on the far side, and the cathedral rising in the distance. This beaker is inscribed on the back in German, which, along with Czech, was widely spoken in the capital city for centuries.
