About Dubrovnik Synagogue

Dubrovnik Synagogue was formally founded in 1408 (although some say it was first established in the fourteenth century).

It is the longest surviving Sephardic synagogue and now acts as both a place of worship and as a museum. It is also said to be the world’s second oldest synagogue.
