Raeapteek Pharmacy – Tallinn, Estonia

One of the Oldest Pharmacies in Europe

More in: , Estonia

Built in 1422, Raeapteek Pharmacy is one of the oldest pharmacies in Europe, and the oldest that is in continual operation. While the pharmacy now dispenses modern medicine, the interior has been kept as it was centuries ago. Raeapteek is known for their medicinal relic, spiced Klarett Wine, which they sell in an old-fashioned pottery jug for about $22 (US). This miracle remedy was widely believed to aid digestion and even cure the plague.
