“A Nice Glimpse of Jewish History in Dubrovnik”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

There is not a whole lot to see here, but it is definitely worth taking the few minutes to visit, along with its small accompanying museum, especially if you are Jewish or interested in Jewish history. The synagogue itself is very small but beautifully preserved and charming.

“Beautiful old synagogue”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

Revisited this beautiful old synagogue which unfortunately only holds services for Rosh Hashonah and Yom Kippur. We feel that it is very important to support this piece of Jewish life which existed in Dubrovnik before the Holocaust. If you're in the Stradun, stop off and have a look at the synagogue and museum to recognize what once was.

“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,
