Weather in Romania

Back to the Romania index

It can get muggy in the summer (extreme elevation notwithstanding), but the Mediterranean this ain’t. The average annual temperature here is 11°C in the south and on the coast, while you’ll be lucky (and downright jubilant) to see 2°C in the mountains. Believe me when I say that Romanian winters can be extremely cold and foggy, with lots of snow from December to April. Snow removal organization is still nascent and it’s entirely possible to be literally trapped in a city, even during a moderate storm, due to huge, crazy drifts on the countryside roads.

In summer there’s usually hot, sunny weather on the Black Sea coast and you’ll even be wishing for some good old fashion fans (which are mysteriously absent) in the north. The majority of Romania’s rain falls in the spring, with the mountains getting the most, the Danube Delta the least.
