The climate throughout Croatia varies based on distance from the Adriatic Sea.  Areas close to the coast predominantly experience a Mediterranean climate with warm summers and mild winters.  The areas further inland predominantly experience a Continental climate with warm summer and cold winters. 

            The majority of the coastal region, including the city of Dubrovnik, is considered to be a year round destination.  The warmest months of the year are July and August, during which time the daytime high temperatures will hover around the mid to lower 80’s.  During extremely hot days, the temperature may reach the lower 90’s.  Nighttime temperatures during these months will drop to the mid 60’s.  The coldest months of the year on average are January and February, during which time the daytime highs will be in the mid 50’s, with nighttime temperatures dropping to the low 40’s.  The rainiest months of the year are generally November and December, with the summer months being fairly dry.  Visit the Trip Advisor Dubrovnik Page for more information about this particular location.

              The inland areas of Croatia, including the city of Zagreb, are most comfortable during the summer months.  July and August are again the warmest months of the year, experiencing average daytime high temperatures in the upper 70’s and lower 80’s.  The winter months are not only the wettest months of the year, but the nighttime temperatures will generally drop to below freezing.  Visit the Zagreb Monthly Weather Averages page for more information about this specific location.
