This is one of the oldest aphothecaries in Europe. The history is fascinating provided by pictures, actual artifacts and descriptions.

Read all the descriptions! Entrance is free of course, and you can read and listen/watch about the history of the building. It still works as a pharmacy, so you can buy medicines there. It is in the center, and it will take 10 mins of...More
