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.

  • In use since 1420, the apothecary is just off the corner of Town Square and should not be missed when visiting Town Center. Fully active pharmacy, it also has some nice gift items noting its heritage 
  • It is a small drugstore in the corner of the Town Hall square. It is old, it is said of Europe's oldest pharmacy. Now they are open, normally sells drugs. Had the feel of history.

  • Discovered it by accident. Close to the main square in the old town. Ask at the tourist information, if you cannot find it.
