Authentic Soviet interior at Kaunas pharmacy "Vilties vaistinė", Lithuania
Lithuania

Kaunas pharmacy Vilties vaistinė, situated on Laisvės Alėja (Liberty Boulevard, one of the longest pedestrian streets in Europe), was established in 1925, and in 1958 it moved to its present location. Its nowadays unique interior – with large wall fresco, stalactite-like glass plafonds, decorative wooden counters and cabinets – was designed in 1982.

Creation of fresco required utmost concentration – if an element was not completed within six hours, it should have been repainted anew. Marble blocks for flooring were “officially stolen” from the remainders of marble used for construction of the Lithuanian nuclear power plant, or, more precisely, they were “exchanged” for the medical spirit. Arūnas Šiaučiulis, the owner of the Vilties vaistinė, says with an ironical smile – “the power plant has long gone, but the pharmacy remains alive”.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
