"Town Hall Pharmacy" Raeapteek - Town Hall Pharmacy Tip by fabikt

Raeapteek - Town Hall Pharmacy, Tallinn: 13 reviews and 25 photos


Town Hall Pharmacy is one of the oldest pharmacies still functioning in its original spot in all of Europe.
The pharmacy was first mentioned in historical documents in 1422, but by some accounts, it may be older still. The town council-governed pharmacy sold many other goods besides medicine.
Over the centuries, it has changed slightly, but it still retains the flavour of bygone days, while it sells modern medicines. Medieval medicinal ingredients like bat powder and snakeskin are no longer available, but you can still try the fine spiced claret, renowned already in the Middle Ages.
