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.
