You can buy medicines at the pharmacy. You can get some medicines cheaper if you have been diagnosed with a disease (blue prescription). Some medicines you can buy freely, while others you must have a prescription (message) from the doctor that you can buy.
The pharmacies are not state-owned, and there are many different pharmacy chains. You can decide which pharmacy you want to shop at.
Most pharmacies also sell make-up, sunscreen and can do simple tests such as blood pressure measurements and flu shot.
