Here is Colorado USA it pleasant despite the snow in the winter. We average around 350 days a year of Sunshine and temperatures are usually mild and dry North of Denver. Someday, Lord willing, I would like to visit your country.
B.W., I wouldn't want to drift off topic, but you're the admin, so if it's fine with you...
The weather in Croatia depends on the region. Northern parts, which include the capital Zagreb and the plains of Slavonia, have a moderate continental climate similar to other central European countries, like Austria or Hungary. The south, by which I mean the region of Dalmatia, has a Mediterranean climate with rainy winters and hot summers, similar to Italy, Spain or Greece. During the summer, temperatures in the entire Croatia fluctuate around 30C, while during winters the Mediterranean south witnesses temperatures from 5-10C, while in the continental north temperatures are usually slightly below zero.
You won't find that
much sunshine in Croatia as in Colorado. The south witnesses about 2,700 hours of sunshine, while Zagreb has about 1,900.
If you ever decide to visit Croatia, I'm sure you won't be disappointed. I've talked to many tourists and they were very satisfied. I recommend visiting the towns due to their cultural heritage.
B.W. don't you know it's improper board etiquette to interrupt a testosterone filled thread, with talk of the weather in Croatia?
I just had this conversation with Reactionary the other day. Climate is mediterranean.
warm, dry summers, and mild, rainy winters. And there's mountains. Kinda like Colorado without the snow, and cold. Warm like Florida, without the humidity.
Rick, but not the entire Croatia has Mediterranean climate. This map roughly describes it: http://www.cromaps.com/assets/opci_poda ... romaps.jpg
