The most interesting sight of Donetsk is the Pharmacy Museum Lache. At the end of the 19th century, a doctor from Belgium, Lache, moved to the city. He opened a pharmacy on the first floor of his house, which at that time, was one of the largest in the city. In this pharmacy, various medications were prepared and sold, and you could even buy cosmetic products in it. Despite the fact that over the years the historical building has changed its appearance several times, the internal setting of the pharmacy has remained virtually unchanged. Today, the museum houses an interesting collection of things one way or another, related to the pharmacy business.
There are many picturesque parks in the city, and even more symbolic monuments. A special place is the Park of Forged Figures. On its territory, there are real works of blacksmith's art. Absolutely all the sculptures presented on the territory of the park were forged by local blacksmiths. Here you can see figures of very different subjects. Among them there are miniature copies of world famous landmarks, and the symbolical signs of the Zodiac, as well as thematic figures, including those dedicated to football.
Donetsk has a beautiful botanical garden, which was founded in 1964. This garden is huge; its area is more than 260 hectares, and more than 5.5 thousand plants can be seen in it. During the walk, visitors to the garden can admire the beautiful ponds located on its territory. Also, several beautiful old buildings still remain in the garden. Many unique plants are kept in the greenhouse; you can admire them even in winter.
