Jutting out into the Adriatic Sea, Dubrovnik’s old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Europe’s best-preserved old towns. The Walls of Dubrovnik were never breached, and they are considered one of the great fortifications of the Middle Ages. Our Jewish Dubrovnik tour follows the limestone-paved Stradun Street, with its fabulous architecture, leading to Onofrio’s Fountain. On to Zudioska Ulica – Jewish Street – and the Jewish ghetto, which was established in 1546, making it is one of the oldest in Europe. Dubrovnik boasts an active Jewish community center and Jewish museum. The Dubrovnik synagogue is one of the most cherished sites of Jewish culture in this part of the world. It combines a 13th century Gothic structure with a 17th century Sephardic interior. The original Jewish cemetery of Dubrovnik can also be visited upon request.
