“Small and Charming”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

This is a tiny synagogue on a tiny street (but aren't they all in the Old City) right off of the Stradum. The small museum is downstairs and charges a small fee (why not pay, you'll feel good for it!) and the synagogue itself is up a steep staircase. Pause in the little street in front of the building. Here It stands . . . surviving WW2 . . . now with 2000 Jews in Croatia where 50 years ago there were 24,000. Amazing. Trinkets at the Jewish gift shop next store.

In all, you'll spend about 30 minutes here. And you'll remember it once you are home.

“Interesting place to Visit”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

Small but impressive collection of Judaica in the museum. The attendant was informative about the history of this museum and the one in Prague. The synagogue itself was interesting yet small. There was a 5EU charge to enter but I feel it was worthwhile to maintain this important piece of Dubrovnik and Jewish) history,

Reviewed October 27, 2013

We had the opportunity to visit on our Adriatic trip. we always try to visit the synagogues when we can. They are all very beautiful in their own ways. The was no one available during our recent to give us the history but they did allow pictures. I have attached a few for your enlightenment. Enjy.

“Fascinating”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

This old temple is nothing like all of the elaborate churches, but very informative and historical. There is a small museum area before you go up the stairs to the synagogue. We did inquire about the blue ceiling in the synagogue. It was obviously not original and restored, but painted a vibrant blue with stenciled Jewish stars on it and painted about 15 years ago.

“Interesting . . .”
Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

. . . But it is helpful to visit with a knowledgeable guide who can provide background on the history of the synagogue. If you are not so fortunate, ask the person in the museum or shop to tell you the history if the synagogue.

Yes, it is small but it is an important historical site in the history of both Croatia and the Jewish people. If you are going on to Split, you will be able to see the 3rd oldest synagogue in Europe.

Who would guess that two of the three oldest synagogues in Europe would be found in Croatia? Both are sites worth preserving and supporting (donations are accepted).
