Purported to be the second oldest Jewish house of worship in Europe (built between 1352 and 1408), the Dubrovnik Synagogue is a place rich in both historical and religious significance. If you happen to be in town for a Jewish holiday, you may even get to see it in use, though these occasions are fairly few and far between. You'll likely have to content yourself with a visit to the synagogue's museum, which is by no means disappointing. Inside this small, second-floor gallery visitors are treated to some impressive artifacts, including a 13th century Moorish carpet and a copy of the Torah which is said to date back some 750 years. The fact that the Baroque structure is still standing after sustaining heavy damage during the Croat-Serbian conflict is a testament to its resilience, and makes a visit here all the more intriguing. If you're got a half hour to spare, it's right off the Stradun and well worth the time.
