Jewish Interest Tour Dubrovnik

5 / 5 total 6 reviews
Duration: 2 hours
Product code: 1868
Overview

Despite the small size of Dubrovnik's Old Town, the synagogue of Dubrovnik has global significance and was the central part of Jewish heritage in Dubrovnik throughout the history. 

The second oldest, still active, synagogue in Europe (after the one in Prague), it was established in 1408 and its present interior dates from 1652. 

Today there are only a handful of Jews still living here and the synagogue is mostly a museum - but from time to time prayer services are still held by visiting rabbis. 

We will start our special tour in front of Onofrio's fountain and continue along the main street Stradun, towards Zudioska (Jewish) Street where the Jewish community once lived. 

Then we will visit the synagogue and its remarkably well-preserved and historically significant interior, together with a small but remarkable Jewish museum, holding precious 13th and 14th century Torahs and many valuable documents related to the history of Jews in Dubrovnik. 

After the visit to the Synagogue and the Jewish Museum, the tour continues with exploring the magnificent cultural heritage of Dubrovnik and tells the story of the historically significant Jewish community and the time they lived in.

Our guide was terrific! This was hands down, one of the best Jewish Heritage tours I've ever taken. She also filled us in on the general history of Croatia and of Dubrovnik, in particular. Interesting tour.

Dubrovnik’s Jewish area is tiny, but the guide was able to provide the historical context of the area, both past and present.
