  • Museum Pharmacy «Pid Chornym Orlom» (Beneath the Black Eagle) This pharmacy was founded in 1735; it is the oldest pharmacy in the city of Lviv.

    A museum related to pharmaceutical history was opened on the premises of the old pharmacy in 1966. The idea of creating such a museum had already come up in the XIX century. The Galician Association of Pharmacists was created in 1868; members managed to assemble a small collection of exhibits, thus making the first step towards creating a new museum. Nowadays, the exhibition has expanded considerably, with 16 exhibit rooms and a general exhibition surface totalling 700 sq. m. There are more than 3,000 exhibits in the museum.

    This is the only operating Museum Pharmacy in Ukraine and Europe. Just beside the unique pharmacy, you can visit the museum itself, which presents rare and curious exhibits, assembled by scientists, pharmacists, and enthusiastic collectors.

    Today, the pharmacy operates daily; here, you can still buy all your required medicine, as well as the renowned «Zalizne Vyno» (Iron Wine).

    Admission: 10 UAH
