The synagogue in Dubrovnik is nice but also very modest. We made a guided tour which also included a walking tour of the city focusing on landmarks relevant for the jewish culture. The synagogue was the final point, and it will please those interested in that subject.
Though small, this historic synagogue gives visitors a window into Jewish history. There are original documents dating back centuries when Dubrovnik, like many other European countries, confined its Jewish population to ghettos.

We were charged a fee to... 更多
We were given a tour of this delightful, small and old synagogue. It was so full of history. The little museum at the top absolutely made this visit, having numerous interesting and rather sad exhibits.
