Jews came to Dubrovnik in the 15th century and made an important cultural contribution to the development of the Dubrovnik Republic. 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.
