Amazing synagogue. One of the oldest in Europe. Made in wood you can actually feel like going back on time. Must go place.

This is a tiny place as befits a synagogue that has never had more than a few members. It is worth visiting particularly for the historical collection. We wre very surprised to find it open on a Saturday, and on Yom Kippur no less!

Was surprised to hear the admission price has doubled since Spring 2014. Exhibits are nice but for the price there really should be more to see in the museum. Synagogue is lovely and you'd never know it is right there! Exhibit titles in Croatian and English.

Considering the Synagogue took a direct hit in the 1991 War, it has been beautifully restored. The collection of old Torahs and other religious artifacts is amazing considering what Dubrovnik went through in WW2 and the 1991 war with Serbia. While the admission is 35 Kunas (about US$6), it is worth every penny and we were glad to contribute to... More

Interesting museum and synagogue. Visited so many different places of worship so nice to add this to the list. Not very big but neither does it cost a lot to go in.

It is discreetly located in a narrow street off the high street, not advertised, and not expected in this several times torn down city of Dubrovnik, formerly a wealthy republic like Venice. This small synagogue used to serve a community of 200 Jews until the 1950s, now down to 20, and getting older. As a jewish orthodox community they need... More

This place was easy to find, just off the big square down a little street and the up some stairs on the right........and ask any shop if you are lost. There is a small fee to enter that we gladly paid.....the Jewish community is very small and would not be able to sustain this relic without public support, whereas Christian... More

Our first ever visit to a synagogue and there as something moving about this one, maybe because most of the Jewish population were driven out of the area by various evil acts over the years. Very well preserved. It is ashamed that people are charged to go in, most of the churches are free.
