The synagogue is special . Full of history and different traditions . Within the synagogue is a museum and gift shop on the ground floor . It is extremely sad to read all of which are going through Dubrovnik Jews throughout history and the most terrible during the Second World War of which there are written documents in the museum...

amazingly maintained by the small community and full of interesting objects dating back 100s of years. A must visit for anybody interested in the Jewish history of the area

A nice little synagogue which is worth seeing, but you have to pay a fee. Unfortunately it lacks some description of its history. The person at the entrance gave us some background info, mostly after we asked. A plaque with a short historic overview of the synagogue and the Jewish community would be nice.

Jwish hidden treasure close to the main street. It is the oldest working sefard synagogue in Europe.The old Tora brought from Spain is amazing.

As other reviewers have mentioned, the synagogue is quite small, as are the displays on the floor below -- but since when is the size of a synagogue the reason for visiting? I found the modest size -- very nicely preserved -- and the hidden nature of the synagogue very moving -- a potent reminder of the size of this... More

It is left beautifull intact but not much of a warm welcome and no stories were shared with us by the men we had to pay. Maybe some refressing can be done with foto's and short storries of the community ? Was there even a possibility of a guide ?

As mentioned by other reviewers, the entry is easy to miss, but the interior is so worth the visit. Entry was 40 kuna pp and no one offered to guide us through the tiny synagogue and museum. This is the oldest Sephardi Synagogue in the world. One level is a museum and the upper level is still used for worship.

I took my class here as part of my study abroad course. We did arrive a little close to closing. Still, I didn't exactly feel welcome. The price was high and must be paid in cash. The synagogue is terribly sad, but we expected that. Like many places, a sign before entering prohibited photos. And yet, there was no art... More

The synagogue is right in old town just a minute from the main square. It is a little hard to find messages on the second floor of a walk up staircase. On the main floor is a little museum with the history of the Jews in Dubrovnik. The synagogue is very tiny as the Jewish population before the second world... More
