Step through the door at Drukarska 2 and find yourself in what is quite possibly the most beautiful place in all Lviv. This is the kind of nook that Arturo Perez-Reverte might write about in one of his mystery novels, and you half expect to find some crazed alchemist lurking in the cellars. There are half a dozen or so rooms to explore spread across a Renaissance era townhouse, so don't forget to step through the courtyard at the back. The main room still functions as a chemists to this day. It was founded all the way back in 1735 - long may she continue to flourish!
