The climate in Croatia can be divided into three areas. The Dalmatian Adriatic region has a Mediterranean climate with warm summer months and mild but rainy winters. The northeast and east of the country, on the other hand, is characterised by a continental climate with large temperature differences between dry, hot summers and cold, snowy winters. The two climate regions are separated by the Dinaric Alps. There is a mountain climate with quite short summers, long winters and high rainfall. The warmest months are June, July and August. Then the average monthly temperatures in the Adriatic reach values between 25 and 28, and in the east of the country up to 30 degrees.
The months of June to September are the best months for a beach holiday on the Adriatic. City breaks and sightseeing are available in spring and autumn when temperatures are not quite so hot. From December to February, winter sports enthusiasts can enjoy themselves in the Dinaric mountains.
