Virtual Walking Tour: Jewish Split

Hosted By: The Museum of Jewish Heritage-- A Living Memorial to the Holocaust

Join the Museum of Jewish Heritage and Our Travel Circle for a live-streamed guided walking tour of Split, Croatia, and explore the rich Jewish heritage of this beautiful Mediterranean city. The Jewish community of Split is one of the oldest in Europe, having been there since Roman times, growing in depth and breadth as a haven from the Inquisition, and enjoying special status in the city. The city’s Jewish community has seen a revival since Croatia gained its independence in the 1990s.

On the tour, tour guide Lea will take travelers to sites that tell of Split’s Jewish past, including the historic Jewish cemetery on the Marjan hill; Morpurgo, which was one of the oldest bookstores in Europe and established by a prominent Jewish family; and the streets of the former Jewish ghetto, where one can see a collection of voids in doorways that once held mezuzot. Attendees will also see popular landmarks such as the Split Synagogue, the world’s third oldest Sephardic synagogue still in use.

Admission is $18 for Museum members and $36 for non-Museum members.
