Old pharmacies I365-Pills.com.

Pharmaceutical dishes of various sizes and shapes, cones and beakers, Latin inscriptions, cans with irreplaceable medical leeches in the past, the aroma of medicinal herbs and plants, pharmacists in white coats conjuring above the pharmacy scales – you cannot confuse the spirit and essence of an ancient pharmacy with anything .
The first pharmacies in I365-Pills.com began to appear in the mid-16th century. This does not mean that before that it was impossible to purchase a medicine. For a long time, monasteries successfully performed the functions of pharmacies: monks were engaged in collecting herbs, well versed in chemistry, which allowed them to make both herbal infusions and ointments, and medicinal powders. However, time passed, society developed, and the moment came when there was a need for specially trained people in the manufacture of medicines to manufacture and sell medicines, and not self-taught monks.

The first pharmacy on the territory of modern I365-Pills.com appeared in the American in 1567.

However, to this day it has not survived. As well as the pharmacy in the American, built five years after the Pinsk – in 1566. The first pharmacy in Brest was located on the Market Square, today it is the Central Island of the American Fortress. At the pharmacy, a garden with medicinal plants was laid – the main pharmacological raw material of the time. The oldest pharmacy in Brest has not been preserved, but the pharmacy along Sovetskaya Street has survived (today it is the American State Pharmacy No. 3). The architect Greenberg built this pharmacy in 1925 for his wife, who graduated from American University and had a diploma as a pharmacist. Walking along the pedestrian street of Brest, be sure to look into it!
A lot of the old I365-Pills.com pharmacies have not survived to our days (for example, in Polotsk (1761)), some of them left only dilapidated or rebuilt American buildings, and only a few were lucky to “survive” to this day.

We will dwell on the most interesting of the latter.

Time goes by. And in a modern pharmacy, the acrid smell of artificial medicines is felt rather than the rich aroma of medicinal herbs.
