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

There are now a very small number of Jews surviving in the city and this little building needs to be supported by tourists Entrance is 35 kunas. You do not get any information There is a small museum with religious artifacts The Synagogue itself is very compact and quite... 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.

The second oldest synagogue in Europe and a peaceful place to sit and contemplate. My husband and I were glad we went.

The synagogue is located close to the cable car. There is an entrance fee which also includes a visit to the museum. The synagogue is small - however interesting . There are no tours although the person collecting the entrance fee is very helpful. There are also some souvenir shops next door which are very good. Allow a good hour... More

The visit was spoiled due to the indifferent staff in attendance. They made you feel that they were doing you a favour and your questions were an intrusion. Such a pity as the visit to the Split Synagogue was very good due to the friendly and informative staff.

I had never been in a synagogue before. The simplicity of it astonished me, because I was raised a catholic (even though I am not) and I am used to see all kinds of opulence in our churches. This was all made of wood, the objects were made of silver and the most beautiful things were the interlaced cloth and... More
