By a stroke of luck we arrived today (19th September) and were told the museum and synagogue were both free today only. This is due to a Jewish holiday.
The place was nice and I’m glad we had a look around but I have to...More
It was underwhelming to see this, the oldest continuing Sephardic Synagogue in Europe, because it was set in a nondescript townhouse on Jewish street, just off Stradun and Luza Square, the main square of the city. I was not hoping to see a grandiose church-like...More
We were horrified by the rudeness of the man working at the door. There is certainly not a Jewish community or Rabbi involved with this establishment (if there is, for shame, especially taking money on Shabbat) and it is no longer a functioning house of...More
It doesn't take too long to visit the Synagogue but it is well worth taking the time to have a look around. What struck me is how peaceful this place is given that it's located on quite a busy side street. The inside of the...More
Tucked a way on Zhudioska (Jew) street is this ancient synagogue. Although a small Jewish community remains, we were advised that services are no longer held. The synagogue is beautiful and defiintely worth a visit. the admission price is a little steep.
Our visit to Dubrovnik's synagogue was fascinating. Many thanks to the lovely young woman who told us about Dubrovnik's Jewish community and the synagogue, including the Ashkenazi and Sfardic influences. We were happy to pay the entrance fee as it helps support the upkeep of...More
The synagogue is situated on the northern side of the town. It is no longer active, but retains its features, including ark, bimah and Sephardi-style seating (around the edge, facing the bimah).
There is a small museum, and a Judaica shop next door.

My recall when I visited in April is that it was closed on both Saturday and Sunday but that may have changed as the opening times vary by season (it closed at 3.30 p.m. when we were there in April but I belive it is open much later in the summer monts). If you are only in Dubrovnik for the weekend it would be worth calling ahead (+385-20) 32 12 04); if you are likely to be there on a weekday as well then laeve it for the weekday to be on the safe side. It is a very small museum/synagogue so 30 minutes to an hour is more than enough time although we thought it very atmospheric and took time to just sit and contemplate
