­­­­­Old-Time Apothecary

If you're in need of a pain reliever, you might want to stop by Raeapteek, which translates to "Town Hall Pharmacy." But this is no ordinary pharmacy; it's one of the oldest in Europe, dating back to at least the Middle Ages. Its first mention in Tallinn town records was in 1422, and by then it had already changed ownership three times.

Check out the museum in the back where remedies and equipment from days past are on display. The shop also sells teas and tinctures made from local herbs and flowers. You'll find the traditional wine-and-spice blend of Claret, which has been sold continuously in the shop since 1467.
