Synagogue serves as the oldest Sephardic rite synagogue in the world and the second-oldest Jewish synagogue in Europe. Established in 1352, this ghetto synagogue is still operational and hosts a museum of Iberian Jewish items and artifacts. Visit the site, hidden in a small narrow street, for the chance to see ceremonial horns, prayer books, and Torah pointers. Observe the old, heavy wooden elements, which embue the place with an old-world feel. The site also holds numerous documents and manuscripts about the Jewish history in Croatia, from the people's arrival in 1421 through expulsion in World War II.

  • A great granddaughter of Holocaust survivors gave us an informative personal history of Jews in Dubrovnik. The small museum has interesting artifacts and Judaica. There is a small entrance fee.
  • Quite difficult to find in the Old Town of Dubrovnik. Small and quaint and beautiful .
