The resort of Sosua is located on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. Its history began in 1938, when, with the permission of the current president Rafael Trujillo, German and Austrian Jews moved here. They fled their countries from Nazi persecution. First, refugees founded here the world-famous cheese and dairy plant “Productos Sosúa”, and since the 60s they began to develop the city as a tourist center. A little later, almost all tribal clans emigrated to the United States or Israel, but their business continued to develop. In memory of the people who built this amazing city, the Museum of Jewish Culture was created – the main attraction of Sosua. Hotels of the resort are located both in the city and its environs. The best of them will be discussed in the proposed review.
