With the Alps to the west and the flat, open Great Plain to the east, Budapest's climate is accented with warm summers and bitterly cold winters, with plenty of rain all year round. Winters are fairly short, with the very cold weather arriving in mid-December; it is usually cloudy and damp with the odd bright sunny days and frequent, but light, snow. In summer, from late May to September, Budapest has a high proportion of sunny, warm days with relatively high humidity, the sun shining for about 10 hours a day.

May: Average maximum 22°C

Dubrovnik has a typical Mediterranean climate with hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters. Summer days can be intensely hot, but humidity is moderate and gentle breezes ensure very cool, pleasant evenings. Summer (June to August) is relatively mild with an average temperature of around 26°C but temperatures can rise to well over 30°C, especially in the southern region. Winters are significantly colder but they are not severe and at the coast snow is unusual. In winter (November to February) temperatures occasionally drop below freezing point along the northern Adriatic, while the southern coastal areas are slightly warmer. The wettest months are October, November and December.

May: Average maximum 21°C

Sarajevo has a humid continental climate with warm summers and no dry season. The best time to visit Sarajevo is during May and October when the average temperatures are perhaps a little cooler than preferred but still a pleasant 10°C to 20°C.

May: Average maximum 20°C

Bled has a sub alpine climate with warm summers and cool to cold winters.

May: Average maximum 16°C

Ljubljana has a climate influenced by its location with a large basin, surrounded by sub-Alpine and karst mountain regions. Summers are warmed by the mild breezes from the Mediterranean, making the weather usually sunny and hot. During winter temperature inversions cause the foggy air to hang heavy over the city, bringing cold, moist conditions.

May: Average maximum 20°C

Venice experiences very high humidity, with hot weather in July and August, the height of summer. Temperatures in summer usually range between 30°C to 33°C, dropping in winter to between 0°C to 3°C. Due to its location on the Adriatic coast, Venice often experiences thunderstorms and rain showers which, particularly in spring and autumn, tend to cause flooding. April to October is usually the busiest time in Venice, though it is a popular destination all year round. Christmas, Easter and Carnival (in February), but winter is perhaps the best time to travel to Venice to avoid crowds.

June: Average maximum 25°C
