Raeapteek (Tallinn)

Tallinn Raeapteek

The Raeapteek or Town Council Pharmacy is located on the north side of the Town Hall Square (Raekoja plats). Pharmacy or apothecary was located here since the medieval times. It was first mentioned in 1422 when it was owned by Burkhardt family. Subsequent 10 generations of this dynasty worked in pharmaceutical business in a current Raeapteek. The pharmacy is divided into 2 rooms. One rooms is dedicated to a pharmacy itself, where they still sell modern drugs and medicines. The second room is a small museum full of ancient potions made from dried herbs, burned bees, earthworms and many other unusual components. These medicines are not for so sale, however. The Raeapteek is open to the public free of charge. Visitors are often treated with marzipan deserts.
