Visiting the synagogue and museum brings home the survival of the Jewish people in a land that decimated the population. At present there are only 50 families but some are young so there is hope for more. The tragedy of WWII is brought home with...More

Recommended destination to see beautiful, historic synagogue and artifacts including proclamations on Jewish emancipation (1808), and Jewish property confiscation (1941). Note a long, steep staircase to enter the synagogue, and a small, lovely gift shop.

Tucked away in one of the little side streets, this was very interesting. It is mainly a museum now but there is still a synagogue as well, although rarely used for services now I understand that occasionally on an important festival, a rabbi might visit...More

worthwhile to visit a religious house that goes back centuries. Small but very interesting you can imagine the services that could be held there.

It was so moving to find the synagogue. As a jewish person it's a pride to see history remain strong for generations to come. The synagogue is small but kept so well, I was happy to pay a small entrance fee after all that is...More

The synagogue is lovely, but as it is also a museum could really do with more information, at least when there are not services going on. The museum rooms are small and seem focused on very minute aspects of Judaism in Dubrovnik- it would be...More

What made this visit disappointing was the steep entrance fee. We paid 36 euros for our family of six. While it was interesting to see the synagogue, the museum was very small. As another poster mentioned, the man who sold the tickets was very rude....More

Reputed to be the oldest continually used synagogue in the word dating from 1352. Very nice building includes small museum and very expensive gift shop.

I loved this little synagogue, which is not really in use any more. They have a fantastic collection of artifacts, including a Torah from Spain from the late 1400s, just before the Jews were thrown out of Spain. The fact that this document survived not...More

I visited the synagogues in Split and Dubrovnik both without prior notice. The one in Split is a living community and the secretary showed and spoke to us. We made a donation. In Dubrovnik it is now more of a museum with... More
