Want to spend your holidays in Croatia? Well, that shouldn’t be a tough decision to make if you consider the natural and architectural beauties, great food and wine, rich cultural and traditional heritage. But no matter how beautiful the place is, the one thing that can ruin any vacation is a bad weather. Yes, we have all been there. It always rains on our day off work, and the temperature always drops during that week we planned to relax on the beach.
However, if you decide to visit Croatia, and to be precise, if you decide to visit Dubrovnik, you are in luck my friend! You can prepare yourself for pleasant Mediterranean climate and plenty of sunshine. With over 250 sunny days a year, the near-perfect weather conditions and warm sea have made Dubrovnik a perfect holiday destination. But you probably want to know when is the perfect time to visit Dubrovnik! Here are some facts:
- On average, the warmest months are July and August.
- Most rainfall is in January, February, March, April, September, October, November and December.
- On average, the warmest month is July.
- On average, the coolest month is January.
- November is the wettest month.
- July is the driest month.
Dubrovnik is definitely one of the sunniest places of southern Europe as rest of the coast in the southern part of Croatia. The town has Mediterranean climate which traditionally has warm and dry summers and mild /cool and sometimes very wet winters. The average temperatures in Dubrovnik range from 4 degrees C in winter to 29 degrees C in summers.
It is also a pretty windy town. And yes, the snow sometimes falls in Dubrovnik, but that is really rare occasion (have a look at the video here).
Still not sure when you should visit Dubrovnik?
The best time to visit Dubrovnik is September and October, when temperatures aren’t extremely hot, yet the most of the cruise ships have left the ports. The sea remains warm for these two months, so it’s a great time to dip into the sea rather than in your deepest pocket. The peak season, summer, has arguably the nicest weather with average high temperatures fluttering. Good news is that even the prices in Dubrovnik dive from October through April.
