Croatia is on Central European Time. In winter: GMT + 1 hour and in summer: GMT + 2 hour.


Inland Croatia has a continental climate, warm in summer, could in winter. In Zagreb the temperature is often 32 C+ (90 F) in high summer (late June to mid-August) and the city centre feels oppressively hot. September and October are usually settled and warm, giving way to colder, foggy weather in November. December and January are the coldest months, with heavy hoar frost, snoww and temperatures as low as -14 C (6 F). In the mountains it is even colder, often with heavy snow. From early March temperatures start to rise, although April and May can be wet. The coast is typically Mediterranean with mild, rainy winters and long, dry summer.
In winter, when the snow starts to thaw, it is liable to slide off roofs and crash onto the pavement. If you see a piece of wood propped against a building and blocking the pavement, give it a wide berth; it means there's unstable snow on the roof above!
