Full description
Visit the Pharmacy Museum, previously called Under the Black Eagle, the oldest of the existing pharmacies in Lviv, turned into the only museum in Ukraine where you can see the old pharmacy equipment used by medieval pharmacists. It seems as though the spirit of health, longevity and even immortality has sprung up. People believed in it and this faith was a peculiar psychological medicine for disease. Sweets from Lviv chocolate manufacture were also good pills because they produce the real hormone of happiness. Then, visit the Museum of the History of Medicine, where you can learn about the Ukrainian medical community, about the galician doctors and the history of the Ukrainian Red Cross. The building of the Regional Clinical Hospital was built as an educational institution for gentry youth. The Austrian government transferred the building to a government hospital, which in 1866 became a general city hospital. Discover the Lviv National Medical University, named after Danylo Halytsky, is one of the largest and oldest medical educational institutions in Ukraine. At the beginning of its existence, the pharmacy produced a small amount of drugs from chemicals and raw materials, which were obtained from wholesale trading enterprises, mainly from Vienna.
