Historic Site Gift & Specialty Shop
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.

  • During the visit to Tallinn you can't go past on the Town Hall square. In this respect there worth a brief flying visit to one of the oldest pharmacies in Europe in any case.

  • It is small and interesting. Several pharmacies are attributed the same merit, I know which is right. Close to the Ayutamiento.

Where to stay in Tallinn

As Estonia's largest city, Tallinn has a wide range of options for accommodation during your travels. Many of these--from economical bed and breakfasts to a luxury hotels--center within the Old Town or just outside of it, giving you easy access to historical sights and a range of activities. Get more for your money by venturing a little farther away; try a guesthouse in one of the surrounding areas for an authentic Estonian experience. Be sure to book accommodation in advance if you are traveling in the summer, as hostels, hotels, and bed and breakfasts are known to book up fast for the months of July and August. This is especially true for weekends from May through to September.
