Historic Site
Take a step back in medical history at Town Council's Aphothecary, the oldest medical enterprise in Tallinn, and one of the oldest in all of Europe. The pharmacy was founded in the early 15th century and has run continuously in the same building ever since. Explore the on-site museum, which displays a small collection of historic medical tools and others used by physicians in the past. You'll find many relics from the business over the years, including an array of medieval and Renaissance-era remedies. For a souvenir, pick up some claret, a spiced Germanic wine, from the pharmacy's gift shop. Arrange to visit Town Council's Aphothecary and other attractions in Tallinn using our Tallinn vacation planner.
