Duration of Dubrovnik Jewish Walking Tour: 2 hours

Trace the history of Dubrovnik’s Jewish community

This tour traces the history of Dubrovnik’s Jewish community and its glittering success during the centuries.

We’ll pay a visit to Dubrovnik’s synagogue, one of the most cherished sites of Jewish culture in Europe.

The combination of a 13th century Gothic house with a 16th century Sephardic synagogue interior makes this place an astonishing historical site where your eyes will be captured by splendid decoration of the interior.

Our expert guides will present to you delightful stories and anecdotes from everyday’s life in the Jewish Ghetto (established 1546, in present-day Žudioska ulica – Jewish Street).

The history of the Jews in the former Yugoslavia dates back to the period of the Roman Empire, some 2000 years ago, with no evidence on continuity until the 15th century.

After fleeing from the Spanish and Portuguese Inquisitions a large numbers of Jews found refuge on the Balkan Peninsula, mostly in Ottoman ruled areas.

Jews under Ottoman ruled areas were engaged in many fields of commerce between the various provinces in the Ottoman Empire and were prominent in trade, manufacture and medicine (alternative).

In Austro-Hungarian area Jews were mostly engaged in trade, and later on in industrial development, medicine, law and finance, civil engineering, education and administrative service. 

Of the 82,500 Jews of Yugoslavia alive in 1941, only 14,000 (17%) survived the Holocaust.

This walk will also emphasize the diverse influences on the Community that are unique for this part of Europe and you’ll be able to learn about every aspect of Jewish life in Dubrovnik until today.

WOW

Ivan Vukovic is THE BEST tourist guide ever. Funny, eloquent, showed us everything we wanted to see and some things we didn’t even thought about! Dubrovnik is a must see place, most beautiful architecture and nature, full of history and Ivan is your go to person! Thumbs up and thank you for amazing time   Dora (TripAdvisor)

A throne to Ivan Vuka

We first met Ivan and his Game of Thrones tour through another Dubrovnik guide, a Portuguesa em Dubrovnik – Cristiana Ferreira. The promise of an amazing tour through the sets of the GOT tv show was fulfilled and overrated my expectations. Ivan is a fantastic guide, who create a complete tour through the most important sets and scenes of the tv show and led the group to know each other. I totally approved and recommended Ivan and his GOT tour. “The Winter is Coming”.   Ana Q (TripAdvisor)

Game of Thrones tour with Ivan Vukovic

We loved the Game of Thrones tour we did with an excellent and fun guide Ivan Vukovic! He did a great job in comparing King’s Landing and real Dubrovnik’s history and actually making the history so much fun, which we never thought it was possible …the time flew by! We highly recommend it! Sandra M (TripAdvisor)

Ivan Vukovic is a true professional

We were a party of 4 who arranged for a private tour with Ivan Vukovic prior to our arrival in Dubrovnik. (…) The actual tour was extremely informative and Ivan’s personality and sense of humor made the time go by extremely fast. The initial Dubrovnik tour was so wonderful that we actually decided to have Ivan show us more sights the following day. That was a great decision in that we saw areas of Dubrovnik that are not seen on “normal” tours. Finally, Ivan’s follow-up after we left Dubrovnik for Split was greatly appreciated. He is the best!

Exceptional Tour Guide Ivan Vukovic

We were lucky to have Ivan Vukovic as our tour guide. It was four of us in the group. He is very passionate, flexible and professional. Ivan was incredibly knowledgeable, giving us detailed information about the history of Dubrovnik, the old city and surrounding area. He brought us to a panoramic place to see Dubrovnik from the top by night. It was amazing view 🙂 We all loved the tour and the passion that Ivan has for her city. We highly recommend Ivan as tour guide. He is the best 🙂
