The synagogue is not functioning as such - for lack of practicing Jews in the city. There are altogether 12 Jewish families in Dubrovnik. But the synagogue as a museum is quite rich in Jewish items and history, and the woman who cells tickets is very friendly. If you stop to talk to her, she'll tell you many interesting things....

The Synagogue is the second oldest in Europe after Prague. The Synagogue itself is tiny with heavy velvet drapes and a richly painted midnight blue ceiling.

This is the second oldest synagogue in Europe, the oldest being in Prague.which we had visited some years previously. You climb steep stairs form the narrow street. The synagogue is up another flight of stairs and the museum is on the first floor. We were the only visitors so we could sit and study the furnishings and absorb the atmosphere.... More

Very interesting. It's small but historic.The second oldest Synagogue in Europe and the oldest Sephardic synagogue still in use. Worth a visit but not for too long. More than 600 years old.

If you have an interest in Jewish Heritage, this small synagogue is worth a stop. It's not one of the magnificent religious cathedrals, but one that stands out because of what it isn't anymore. Set in a side set of stairs from the main street, there are several shops advertising Jewish trinkets nearby. The synagogue was open on Yom Kippur... More

This is probably more intereesting for Jewish than for non Jewish visitors. it is a small two room museum which gives an intersting insight into the history of Jews in Dubrovnik. Upstairs is a small synagogue which I presumed was not used any more as I assume there is no longer a Jewish community in Dubrovnik. Iit seemed a very... More

One of the oldest synagogues in Europe. They history of the Jews in Dubrovnik is fascinating. Make sure you bring a guide who can tell you about the synagogue. Easy to combine a tour of the synagogue with the old city and the city walls. This is good for about a six hour trip including a lunch break.

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!
