We were lucky enough to show up at the synagogue at 10ish, right as the secretary was arriving. She let us into the synagogue and told us a bit about the history of the synagogue and today’s Jewish community in Split. It’s a small space, but beautiful, and one of the oldest synagogues in Europe. There is also a memorial plaque with the names of the community members who perished during the Holocaust.

Wonderful walking tour of historic Split. Our outstanding tour guide, Jelena Vrancic took us through the Diocletian Palace weaving the history of the city together with the history of the small but vibrant Jewish Community. Our tour culminated with a visit to the ancient Synagogue where we met Albert who told stories about the community and its history.

Ok it's tiny. It's difficult to find. And you spend much time there.

BUT....it is a key part of the history and the fact that a tiny Jewish community make the effort to maintain that history means you should make the effort to spend a few minutes of your time and give a donation.

The guy who showed us around gave us a good insight to the history.

Stop at the information center at the Peristyle to get precise directions to the place which is tricky to find otherwise. You will have a great overview of the history of Yugoslavian Jewry and the synagogue presented by Albert. Also, if you want a tour of the Jewish Split go to their website and email Lea to arrange one.
Visit, behold, donate.

We went on a private tour of Jewish Split with our tour guide Lea. It was well worth it. We learned all about the history of the Jews in Split. She showed us menorahs carved into stone in the Diocletian Palace. We saw the Jewish quarter, where the old Jewish cemetery is and then the Synagogue. A small sanctuary up a long flight of stairs. There we met Lea's father, Albert, the caretaker and member of the synagogue. Take a tour...you will learn so much about this community where Jews have been traced back to the 3rd or 4th century.

Compared to other synagogues I’ve visited, this one was somewhat underwhelming. It’s very tiny, difficult to find, and has a dearth of information available. The attendant was pleasant enough, but had very little to say about the place.

My family toured the synagogue as part of a Jewish walking tour of Split. We were met at the synagogue by a very knowledgeable member of the community. He gave us a tour of the synagogue and gave us some history of the building and the Jewish community. Tour was very interesting and the guide was interesting as well as humorous. I would recommend a visit.

As mentioned in the reviews this is a very old congregation dating back to early 1500. The volunteer gentleman docent spends time describing the history of the place, the community of 100 people who keep the place going. He is very generous with his time and happy to talk about the wars, how the Jews survive and their struggles to keep the place going. Services held on holidays but best to call and ask.

Also there is the old Jewish cemetery in the Marjan park with the entrance next to the cafe( at the top of the stairs)Also dates back 500 years but unlike the synagogue it has yet to be restored. Many of the names mentioned in the synagogue memorial plaque are found in cemetery .

Lovely little synagogue with excellent guide. Sobering account of event of 1941-1945, especially after 1943.

A small congregation only 100 members but a a delightful visit and worth a visit. We were given a short history of the Jews in the area.
