Tucked away down one of the alleys with no signs, it's very subtle but worth the effort. The Museum was very interesting and informative, as was the main synagogue. The lady on the door was very helpful.

The synagogue is beautiful, but not used very much. The museum was informative and interesting. We talked to the gentleman on duty about the Jewish community of Dubrovnik.

By a stroke of luck we arrived today (19th September) and were told the museum and synagogue were both free today only. This is due to a Jewish holiday. The place was nice and I’m glad we had a look around but I have to...More

It was underwhelming to see this, the oldest continuing Sephardic Synagogue in Europe, because it was set in a nondescript townhouse on Jewish street, just off Stradun and Luza Square, the main square of the city. I was not hoping to see a grandiose church-like...More

We were horrified by the rudeness of the man working at the door. There is certainly not a Jewish community or Rabbi involved with this establishment (if there is, for shame, especially taking money on Shabbat) and it is no longer a functioning house of...More

It doesn't take too long to visit the Synagogue but it is well worth taking the time to have a look around. What struck me is how peaceful this place is given that it's located on quite a busy side street. The inside of the...More

Hidden in a side street only a short walk from the harbour and up a few steps is this lovely old Sephardi Shul with a museum attached. Well worth a visit

Tucked a way on Zhudioska (Jew) street is this ancient synagogue. Although a small Jewish community remains, we were advised that services are no longer held. The synagogue is beautiful and defiintely worth a visit. the admission price is a little steep.

Our visit to Dubrovnik's synagogue was fascinating. Many thanks to the lovely young woman who told us about Dubrovnik's Jewish community and the synagogue, including the Ashkenazi and Sfardic influences. We were happy to pay the entrance fee as it helps support the upkeep of...More

The synagogue is situated on the northern side of the town. It is no longer active, but retains its features, including ark, bimah and Sephardi-style seating (around the edge, facing the bimah). There is a small museum, and a Judaica shop next door.

I visited the synagogues in Split and Dubrovnik both without prior notice. The one in Split is a living community and the secretary showed and spoke to us. We made a donation. In Dubrovnik it is now more of a museum with... More

We had been told the synagogue was closed on Sunday too, but when we visited in early May, it was open.
