The Synagogue
A decree made by the government of the Dubrovnik Republic in 1546 allowed Jews to settle within the city ramparts.


This officially marks the establishment of the Jewish Ghetto on the street called Žudioska ulica. In 1652, one of the houses was turned into a Synagogue, whose interior is in the baroque style. It has been preserved to this day, with minor changes, and is one of the oldest synagogues in Europe.

The first floor houses a museum with a number of religious artifacts and archive documents. The Torahs in particular, which date from the 13th to the 17th centuries, bear witness to Dubrovniks Jewish community throughout six centuries of history.

Besides the Synagogue, the Dubrovnik Jewish Community has its own cemetery at Boninovo and a small Jewish fountain at Pile.
