Dubrovnik Jewish Heritage Private Walking Tour
Reviewed 23 April 2012

I wouldn't have expected to find such a rich piece of European Jewish heritage in Old Town Dubrovnik, but here it is: the second oldest synagogue in Europe! There is a modest entry fee to see the small museum and the synagogue itself. The museum is composed of old Jewish artifacts and garments (very interesting) and WWII items from then-Ustasa Croatia. The man taking up the entry fee gave me a brief explanation of the museum and explained how a synagogue functioned. It was brief, fun, and informative. I'm glad I went.

I found out recently that my Grandfather was not Austrian but Croatian... When I walked along the streets I wondered if he did as a boy...did he come to this Temple to attend services as a boy?

yes, this happened. I was advised by a man who didn't like that my mother and I stayed in front of the closed place. He said in a rude way that the place is closed from december to march. Is a shame, how this could be? I try to ask to him to open the place to us, but he just walk away. If they cant managed to keep the place open the year round I think it must be taken out from tourist attraction's list. All the other places opened just for us in winter, why they couldn't?

It's very small and up some stairs but worth the visit. Small museum attached. Some art stores nearby are interesting as well.
