    Town Hall Pharmacy

    Tallinn Town Hall Pharmacy is the oldest pharmacy in Europe that has continually operated on the same premises. It was first mentioned in town records in 1422. During the long history of the town hall pharmacy, many dignified men have been pharmacists here. A special honour belongs to the Burchart family, who worked in the pharmacy for as many as ten generations. Today, there is a museum next to the pharmacy, where you can learn about the history and medieval healing methods. Guided tours are offered and workshops are held in the basement. Kindergarten and school groups are welcome! Raeapteeg Museum is supported by the Tallinn Culture and Sports Board.

      Ahhhh yes, here we go. A race for the oldest in anything is bound to create controversy and stir up passions in tourists who use visits to these place as badges of honor. It’s safe to say that... Read more comments
