The Town Hall Pharmacy is the oldest in Europe that has continually operated from the same premises. It was first mentioned in town records in 1422, when an apothecary by the name of Nyclawes was summoned to a session of the town's rulers - but he was at least the third apothecary to have served Tallinn...
In addition to selling modern medicines, the pharmacy today also sells mementos of times past.
Perhaps you'd like a bottle of claret...?
While there, make sure you explore the back room, where you will find an exhibition on medicines and the pharmacy's stocks from the 17th to the 20th centuries.
