Split Jewish Tour will tell you why the Jewish community in Split enjoyed a status unlike anywhere else in Europe, and why Split would not be the same without it.
For a relatively small Mediterranean town, with a dominantly catholic tradition, Jewish heritage in Split makes an incredibly important part of history. In two millennia of its existence, the Jewish community in Split faced many challenges, including the toughest: World War II. But, with the third oldest Synagogue in Europe, one of the oldest and most beautiful Jewish cemeteries and many accomplishments of its members it continues to be a significant driving force of Split’s culture.

We took the tour led by Jakov. This tour is a great introduction to the history of Split and all the sites to see here in the old town. Jakov was a great guide, very knowledgeable about the history of Split and kept the tour fun and engaging. I highly recommend this tour and it is a great value for the money. He also took us to Synagogue which I didn’t even know to exist in Split. Thank you
Amazing Tour with Darko. We saw the whole Diocletian’s Palace which is breathtaking and all the hidden places that we would never found on our own. His knowledge was great. We visited Synagogue where we meet the local rabin. It was a really pleasant surprise to find something like that in Croatia. Jewish history is much bigger then I thougt so in this city.
