Visiting the Rodia Pharmacy

June 17-19, 2021, we have visited the history of pharmacy collection on display in the building of the old apothecary shop of the Misericordian Order in Oradea. Opened in 2019 by the Roman-Catholic Bishopric in Oradea, the collection is housed in the rooms of the old Rodia (Pommegranate) Pharmacy, with valuable rediscovered elements dating from the end of the 18th century: the Baroque painting from the ceiling of the oficina and the original furniture that includes a valuable wall clock. The project has been developed by the late Dr. Budaházi István, implemented by museographers Balla Tünde and Lakatos Attila. After its official opening, the collection has been further enriched with items donated by members of the local community. We applaud the initiative, congratulate our colleagues from Oradea and hope for a fruitful collaboration in the future.
