The city of Prilep in North Macedonia has been famous for its tobacco production for 500 years. Fittingly, it is now home to one of the largest tobacco museums in the world. Formed in 1973, the collection includes more than 2,500 objects related to tobacco. Many of the items are quite valuable and have an interesting backstory, such as the chibouk belonging to Russian Tsar Nikolai Romanov, Queen Anna of Austria’s tobacco pipe, and various cigarette cases and other smoking artifacts that belonged to European royals.
