Split Synagogue, Split

(40 reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
Visit Split Synagogue, a piece of Jewish history tucked into the western walls of Diocletian's Palace within the old town. The synagogue ranks as the third oldest Sephardic synagogue in the world. Formed in 1728, the interior includes the Aron Ha-Kodesh: this ark and inner sanctuary faces Jerusalem and represents the most sacred place of worship, featuring a Classicist black and white marble construction. While the synagogue does not have a resident rabbi, the tight-knit Jewish community continually meets for Sabbath. Other highlights include a display of silverwork and a memorial to the victims of Nazi persecution. Put Split Synagogue at the forefront of your travel plans using our Split vacation route planner.
