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

The museum just under the synagogue is very interesting, with many holy items that were in use by the Jewish congregation in Dubrovnik. Today there are only about 50+ jews that pray at this synagogue on high holidays.

There are so few Jews left in Croatia ant this synagogue is not really used. It is more of a museum displaying Torahs, books and religious items. It is a reminder of what happened to the Jews of Croatia and Europe. Important to visit and to let the locals know the Jews and their history are not forgotten.

It is an old synagogue and there are little exhibits here and there. Nothing really special or unique. Lady at the ticket table was nasty to my daughter and then to my wife. 40 kuna to get in and then there is a donation box. No photos allowed but not enforced.

This is an old preserved Synagogue from 1352. It is not currently being used for services, but is part of the museum. The beautiful old synagogue is upstairs, and has a balcony over it where the women had to sit separate from the men. On the first floor is the museum with a small but impressive collection. There are torah... More

We didn't bother stopping as the guy taking money was very off handed and had a take it or leave it attitude so we left it!

Small synagogue with a separate room dedicated to its history, artefacts, and literature. Accessed from street level by stairs. You only need 30 minutes to visit but worth the low entrance fee. Very atmospheric.

A really old very well preserved synagogue - interestingly up a steep flight of stairs. Survived both WW2 and the Balkan conflict totally intact. Indeed learned that two shells penetrated the roof and neither exploded ! One of the oldest synagogues in Europe and still used on the High Holy Days.
