Split is a city bursting with history. The locals spare no words of praise for the city: the idyllic weather during most of the year has earned it the nickname “Flower of the Mediterranean.” The historic center of the city is on the list of UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites and it is known as a center of Croatian culture. The historical Dalmatia region has been influenced by the Byzantine Empire and Venetian Republic dating back to the Middle Ages. A true highlight of the Jewish tour is the magnificent synagogue, built in the 16th century, which has been in continuous use for more than 500 years, about 100 people still call this community home. We will see the old ghetto as well as the Jewish cemetery which was founded in 1573 and is located only 10 minutes away from the Old Town on the beautiful Marjan Hill that gives a great view over the city.
