Old Jewish Quarter & Other Major Sites
It is said to have been established in 1352, but gained legal status in the city in 1408. Owned by the local Jewish community, the main floor still functions as a place of worship for Holy days and special occasions, but is now mainly a city museum which hosts numerous Jewish ritual items and centuries-old artifacts.
Jews came to Dubrovnik in the 15th century and made an important cultural contribution to the development of the Dubrovnik Republic with their traditions and Hebrew languange. Many Jews became traders and craftsmen, dealing with spices, silks, fabrics, and crafts that were in demand at a seaport city. In 1546, Dubrovnik officials allocated a Jewish settlement within the city, with the main street being called Ulica Zudioska ("Jewish Street") in the Dubrovnik Ghetto.
This walking tour provides an opportunity for guests to understand Jewish life in Dubrovnik and how it has changed through history. We begin with Onofrio's Fountain and continue along Stradun (the main street) to Žudioska Street where the Jewish community was once situated. Here you will visit the famous Synagogue established in the 15th century, re-built in 1652 and still in use today. You will hear the story of Yeshayah Cohen, a sixteenth-century philosopher and poet who has crowned Dubrovnik in his work as Queen of the Illyrian Sea!
After visiting the Synagogue you will visit the Jewish fountain and other major historical sites in Dubrovnik such as Sponza (the first customs office in this part of the world), the Rector’s Palace, City Hall, Bell Tower and the Lodge, Od Puča Street – where many Dubrovnik gold smiths are located. You will also see the famous Orlando’s column along the way. Dubrovnik is the city that will surely capture your heart with its ancient charisma and abundant heritage.

We are Game of Thrones fans. Not the die hard, know every detail, live and breathe fans. But we love watching
the show. What better opportunity to take a Game of Thrones tour then when actually in King's Landing (Dubrovnik).
The tour is two hours and 150 kuna, which I was worried would be too long especially since we walked the entire wall that morning. However, it was a great tour and time flew by. There is a lot of walking but the guide was fantastic very informative. She is a repeat extra on the show so she gave us behind the scenes GOT series info. She had a flip book with pictures from the various scenes in show to remind us of the specific scene and background. This was super helpful.
One thing to note is all Game of Thrones tours take you to St. Lawrence Fort, which has separate entrance fee. If you have your City Walls ticket with you, this gets you the entrance to the fort.
Would definitely recommend this tour!
My partner and I recently went on the walking tour about the war, and I highly recommend it for anyone
visiting the city.
The tour is about an hour long and we went on the weekday early evening tour (6.30pm I think). Our guide was Ana (I think), a very engaging , friendly and professional guide who spoke beautiful English and presented the tour with a perfectly balanced mix of history and personal experience. Ana pointed out war damage which is still visible, the museum of war photography, and ended at the memorial hall to the Dubrovnik defenders, a moving exhibition made all the more so when you hear personal connections.
The length of the tour was perfect, our guide was informative and interesting, and for anyone interested in the recent history of this beautiful city, do this tour!
This tour is highly recommended for movie fans - not only does it highlight the influence of the entertainment industry on Croatian industry, but it also gives you the perfect opportunity to become further immersed in the settings of your favorite series and movies. Although some parts of the Game of Thrones filming are covered in this tour, there is a lot of focus on the movies. We recommend doing the in-depth Game of Thrones tour before/after this tour in order to get the full experience!
Por 90 kunas haces una vista de 1 hora donde ves la historia de la ciudad. Merece mucho la pena ya que te empapas en un momento de todo lo acontecido. Además de consejos y responder dudas. Ivana espectacular muy amena, perfecto castellano. Un must
Excelente opción para comenzar la visita a Dubrovnik, si eres fan de GoT y ademas para conocer algunas
partes importantes de la ciudad. El guía lo es todo y el nuestro (Joseph) la verdad que ha sido interesante,
divertido y muy completo al contar tanto relatos como intimidades. Se presta amablemente a tomarle las
fotos emblemáticas y hasta los lleva al famoso Iron Throne!
Tip: Con el mismo ticket que abonan para ingresas al Fort Lovrijenac HRK 50 ("Red Keep"), pueden descontarlo de su ingreso a la muralla y en vez de abonar 200, pagarían solo los 150 restantes. Recomendamos tanto el tour como a Joseph como su guía!
