After visiting the beautiful but non-functioning synagogue in Debrovnik, it was a spiritual lift to attend friday night services in Sarajevo at the nearby synagogue near the river bank. The Ashkenazic synagogue reflects its history in its name but not in its worship, which is...More

A magnificent example of moorish style synagogue architecture. Well preserved. Damaged during the 1992-5 war but restored. A must see. If you can attend services, even better.

A beautifully painted synagogue. We had an interesting guided tour inside the synagogue, learning about the Jewish community in Sarajevo.

One of the largest and oldest synagogues in Europe. This one survived the 1990s war and the 3 year siege of Sarajevo. It was locked up the day we visited but after we knocked on the doors and passed some unclear test of why we...More
