An insight into the Jewish Heritage in Dubrovnik


This tour has been tailored for all guests who would like to discover the Old Town of Dubrovnik learning, in a couple of hours, interesting facts about Dubrovnik's past.

In the Old Town medieval palaces rub shoulders with churches, monasteries, picturesque cobbled streets and squares and they all tell the story of Dubrovnik and its glorious past.
The tour will include the main landmarks of the Old Town and it will take us to the eastern end of Stradun, the main street, to a narrow alley which is home to a tiny Synagogue dating from the 15th century. Žudioska Ulica or Jewish Street is where the ghetto used to be.
Apart from visiting the sanctuary, we shall take a peek into the small museum which contains valuable menorahs and Torah scrolls, alongside information on the history of the Jewish community in Dubrovnik.

You are bound to be fascinated by the history of Dubrovnik so join me to discover the "Pearl of the Adriatic".

A Recent Review of this tour

Pablo's tour gave us an understanding of the the long history of Jews in Dubrovnik while placing it in a broader context and accompanying the stop along our walk. Ask a question, he has the answer. We would highly recommend this short walk thru the Centuries and the town with delightful guide Pablo.
