Pharmacy in lithuania
Anglų aprašymas. Pharmacy in lithuania. Pharmacy’s long tradition. Five years to become a pharmacist.
History has had a strong influence on the development of pharmacy in Lithuania and pharmacists continue to share in the joys and pains of this tiny but remarkable country, which is experiencing such rapid change. Pharmacy has a long tradition in Lithuania and the first pharmacy was established in the 16th century in the capital city of Vilnius, whose Old Town is the largest in Eastern Europe. Strolling though the warren of winding, cobbled streets with my host, Professor Eduardas Tarasevicius (president of the Lithuania Pharmaceutical Association), I was struck by the number of magnificent churches and cathedrals, many of which have been lovingly restored in muted colours of rose pink, pale yellow and cream. Stand outside a pharmacy and you are sure to be able to see a church spire.
