Synagogue serves as the oldest Sephardic rite synagogue in the world and the second-oldest Jewish synagogue in Europe. Established in 1352, this ghetto synagogue is still operational and hosts a museum of Iberian Jewish items and artifacts. Visit the site, hidden in a small narrow street, for the chance to see ceremonial horns, prayer books, and Torah pointers. Observe the old, heavy wooden elements, which embue the place with an old-world feel. The site also holds numerous documents and manuscripts about the Jewish history in Croatia, from the people's arrival in 1421 through expulsion in World War II.

  • Thank you for maintaining an important part of Jewish heritage. This synagogue is very quaint, the staff are friendly, and the synagogue itself is very neat. The entrance price is a bit steep, but at least it goes towards a good cause.
  • It was a lovely little synagogue, but the claim that it is still “active” was a little disingenuous as they rarely have services. Definitely worth a visit! The entrance fee is a bit pricey, but at least it goes to supporting an important historical Jewish institution.
