Climate The climate of Croatia varies from Mediterranean along the Adriatic coast to continental, inland. The coastal areas have hot, dry summers and rainy winters yet the inland areas are cold in winter and warm in summer.
The coast benefits from refreshing winds in the summer and the mountain ranges shield them from bitter winds in the winter. Sea temperatures never fall below 10 degrees in the winter and in August it can be as high as 26 degrees, due to warm currents flowing north up the Adriatic coast.
In spring and early summer a sea breeze keeps the temperature down along the coast. This breeze that usually starts around 9am is perfect for sailing. The islands benefit from up to 2715 hours of sunshine a year, the sunniest being Hvar.
Winter temperatures range from -1 to 30°C in the continental region, -5 to 0 °C in the mountain region and 5 to 10 °C in the coastal region. Summer temperatures range from 22 to 26 °C in the continental region, 15 to 20 °C in the mountain region and 26 to 30 °C in the coastal region.

Health Advice There are hospitals and clinics in all larger cities and first aid clinics and pharmacies in all places. For patients whose lives are in danger, there is emergency transport by air (helicopter) or sea (speedboat).
If you are visiting Croatia you should obtain a free European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) before departing the UK. Note: The EHIC is not a substitute for medical and travel insurance, but it entitles you to state provided medical treatment that may become necessary during your trip. EHIC is not a travel insurance and does not cover expenses of healthcare services provided by private healthcare providers. It also does not cover repatriation travel costs after the occurrence of the insured event. No specific vaccinations are required for travellers to Croatia direct from the UK.
