In the landlocked state of Serbia, the climate is predominantly temperate and continental. Nevertheless, the proximity to the Black Sea and the Adriatic Sea influences the climatic conditions. In the north, the climate is much more continental with hot summers and cold winters. In the west and southwest, on the other hand, there are Mediterranean influences. In the summer months it is usually quite hot in the whole country. In the capital Belgrade, maximum temperatures of over 35 degrees are not uncommon. The average annual temperature in Belgrade is around 12 degrees, the annual precipitation around 700 mm.
Winter sports enthusiasts can expect snow in frosty temperatures from January to March. More pleasant temperatures prevail from May to October, although the high summer months can be very hot and dry.
