  • One of the most original museums in Kiev is the Pharmacy Museum in Podil, which adjoins the Florovskim monastery. Highly recommend visiting this museum. It is the first private pharmacy in Kiev, founded the German colonist Johann Gejterom more than 200 years ago. In the year 1750 pharmacy came into the possession of his son-in-law Frederick Geogru Bunge, which not only successfully continued the business, but also founded a dynasty of famous physicians, pharmacists and scientists. His son Christian became the first pediatrician in Kiev, and the second son of Christopher served as Vice Rector of the Moscow University. The grandson was Professor, and later Rector of Kiev University of Saint Vladimir. In 80-ies of the 20 century mansion decided to turn to a Pharmacy Museum. Restoration work went as much as 8 years. So the pharmacy got its second birth. In 12 halls can be traced not only to the development of Pharmacology and medicine, but also shows the Genesis doctors, healers, farmers at that time. From 3000 exhibits particularly interesting are those that are located in the former Pharmacy and apothecary Cabinet, acting also as a doctor-furniture, utensils, medical tools, books and notebooks with ancient recipes ... Do not forget to go down to the basement, where you'll see the monk's cell, a peasant hut "with a large table, benches, around by towels-amulets and utensils, and the Cabinet of the Alchemist, the mysterious and mystical. You see how he conjures on bulb, perhaps by inventing new medicines. Speak to your dreams fulfilled, it must be in this Office to leave a few pennies. Leaving the Museum, buy SOAP made by ancient recipes, herbs for teas and delicious candy from berries and fruits on a natural basis. Pharmacy works with 9 to 17, but it is best to call and clarify.

  • An interesting place to visit. Recommend. Took over UAH 70 guides. Without him it would not be interesting. The entrance to a Pharmacy Museum adult 30 UAH. It will also be interesting to visit this place with children.

  • A striking, even a fabulous place. Vintage interior is fascinating. Much every items that attract look, but then, it seemed to me, in a room a bit dark. You can take pictures. It is interesting to be around. Recommend!
