The synagogue in Dubrovnik is nice but also very modest. We made a guided tour which also included a walking tour of the city focusing on landmarks relevant for the jewish culture. The synagogue was the final point, and it will please those interested in that subject.

Though small, this historic synagogue gives visitors a window into Jewish history. There are original documents dating back centuries when Dubrovnik, like many other European countries, confined its Jewish population to ghettos. These documents are on display and have English translations. The synagogue itself is beautiful.

You do not have to be Jewish to appreciate the history and cultural significance of this small synagogue. No longer in use, it is the second oldest in Europe to be in continuous use (until World War II). The museum is also worth a visit.

The museum is small but full of interesting artefacts and information. A little further up the stairs is the synagogue itself which is also small but well maintained.

Should be an essential stop on any visit to old Dubrovnik. Ancient synagogue, well preserved with a small but fascinating museum - which includes a commemoration of the 27 Jews from the city murdered during the Nazi occupation.

I'd never been in a synagogue before and found it a lovely place to be. Much more simple than all the wealthy cathedrals. The museum is one small room, but nicely done.

This is a lovely synagogue, up a steep flight of stairs. The ceiling and the hanging lights in the sanctuary are beautiful. In addition to the sanctuary there is a small museum with some amazing artifacts, such a shofar and various torah ornaments.They are open to visitors Monday-Friday and closed on Saturday and Sunday. We were charged a fee to... More

We were given a tour of this delightful, small and old synagogue. It was so full of history. The little museum at the top absolutely made this visit, having numerous interesting and rather sad exhibits.
