Small synagogue for the 3-block allowed Jewish community whose roots predate the Inquisition....interesting documents from those early days, small sanctuary...not impressive by worldwide grandeur standards but interesting as the second oldest (said our guide) synagogue in Europe, and easy to make a visit part of your Old City tour.

This Synagogue is beautiful. Housed within the building is an interesting museum commemorating Jewish life in Dubrovnik. I would highly recommend a visit if you are in Dubrovnik.

This Sephardic synagogue is on the top (third) floor of a building and has existed as a synagogue since the 16th century.

This synagogue was up a couple of flights of stairs in the old town. Not too much information and really only the small old synagogue to visit. No pictures allowed and so in total the visit might last 10 minutes.

There is a small museum with some Judaica antiques and some copies of documents from WWII and the jews from Dubrovnik which are interesting. The top floor is the actual sanctuary and it was nice to get to visit.

If you want to see a beautiful small sinagoga you will not be disappointed. Very unique, in memory of the jewish community in Dubrovnik. History indeed, a miracle that you can make the visit.

The second oldest synagogue in Europe, Prague being the oldest. Well worth a visit with old scrolls from 14thC to 17C on view. Positioned up a very small alleyway in the old city and well worth a visit.

Down an alley in the old street, the synagogue has a small museum upstairs and is recommended for anyone interested in Judaism or the history of Dubrovnik. It's only small but worth seeing.

The exhibition was poor. Little meaningful exhibits but will appeal to Mainly American tourists searching for their Jewish heritage.

A small but perfectly formed place of worship with museum. Just to sit and contemplate was lovely. Well preserved and sympathetically cared for.
