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

Cost us 35kr each. This did seem expensive for what it is. The museum was interesting with many beautiful artifacts. The synagogue was interesting but not much info was given. Dubrovnik clearly has an interesting Jewish history and it seems a shame that this is only briefly eluded to.

I enjoy visiting cathedrals, synagogues and churches so this one was a good one to add to the list. There is a small museum at the entrance - you need about 10 min (maybe) and then the actually synagogue itself you would need 10 minutes (maybe). I went to the Synagogue on my 2nd trip to Dubrovnik after climbing the... More

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.
