Weather In Croatia

[wunderground location=”Zagreb, Croatia” numdays=”3″ layout=”simple” measurement=”c” showdata=”alert,daynames,pop,icon,text,conditions,date,highlow”]

Croatia’s climate
Areas in Croatia encounter varying weather conditions, dependent on their distance from the Adriatic Sea. Many cities have good weather all year while Dubrovnik on the coast has a typical Mediterranean climate. January and February are the coldest months with July and August being the warmest.

When to fly to Croatia
The winter low season from October to April is cold but prices are low and this is where you will be able to save on your flights to Crotai, attracting travellers on tight budgets and those who enjoy skiing.

Shoulder season from May to June including September provides lower prices, fewer crowds and the Adriatic Sea warm enough to swim in.

High season during July and August has great weather with crowded coastal regions and high prices.

Getting around Croatia
Travellers have a good choice of flights between main airports, with several daily flights on the Zagreb-Split and Dubrovnik routes.

To fully experience authentic Croatia including the islands, travelling by car is the best form of transport but can work out expensive with the high cost of fuel. Visiting during July and August necessitates pre-booking your rental vehicle that be done through Sixt, Europcar including others.

Virtually every town has a bus station and a network of bus routes that affords an excellent and affordable mode of travel within the country. To travel between cities there are express routes on highways with stops at just about each village.

The only way to get around the islands, excluding Pag and Krk, is by ferry or catamaran with Jadrolinija being the main ferry operator. Schedules are enhanced during summer to accommodate escalated traffic but when the bura, a strong north-western wind blows, ferries can be delayed with catamarans altogether sidelined.
