Rivaling Venice with its beauty and maritime commerce, Dubrovnik and Jewish Dubrovnik are must-see gems of Europe. Dubrovnik’s spectacular old town, which juts out into the Adriatic Sea, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Europe’s best-preserved old towns. From there head to Zudioska Ulica – Jewish Street – and the Jewish ghetto which was established in 1546, earning it a spot as one of the oldest in Europe. Dubrovnik boasts an active Jewish community center and museum. The Dubrovnik synagogue is one of the most cherished sites of Jewish culture in this part of the world. It marries a 13th century Gothic structure with a 17th century Sephardic interior. The original Jewish cemetery of Dubrovnik can also be visited upon request.
