On a guided tour of the Jewish quarter in old Dubrovnik this was the highlight. Historically interesting and culturally moving.

We enjoyed walking through the museum, which included evidence of the oppression and prejudice in the past. There are only about 45 members left living in Dubrovnik. Synagogue was rebuilt after extensive damage during the Balkan war in the early 1990's. A young member was in the upstairs portion of the synagogue when we were there to answer questions --... More

The Dubrovnik synagogue is the second oldest in Europe (after the one in Prague), dating from the early 16th century. Though mostly in disuse now, with a dwindling number of members and only a single circuit-riding rabbi to cover the whole of Croatia, the synagogue has been exceedingly well-maintained; its interior, larger and more traditional than its Split counterpart, still...

Honestly we think the worst attraction we walked during the 10 days we visited Croatia.They should not charge tickets, since the synagogue is very simple and the museum has few parts.

of a once important part of the history of Dubrovnik. The museum has some ancient torah scrolls and rimonim, but little else. Please visit and leave a donation to keep this beautiful 'shul' going. Without your visits it will surely close. There are only 45 Jews left in the city and the last time a service of any kind was... More

A sad and very moving experience. This is the second oldest synagogue in Europe, after Prague, but I was told there has never been a large Jewish community here. The room itself is just like other synagogues all over the world, but there are not enough people for regular services - a rabbi comes from Zagreb only a few times... More

Our walking tour guide showed us where this synogogue was located. Later, we went back and took a tour. The 2nd floor is the museum and the 3rd floor is the actual synogogue. It was a shame that the synogogue was not having a service for Rosh Hashana. (the day I was there) I think they could have had a... More
