The European climate is as diverse as its countries. Global warming often portrays very different temperatures than were the norm a few years ago. If we would dare to any draw a line in it, we could generally speaking state that
- Southern Europe (Albania, Croatia, Greece, Italy, Montenegro, Portugal, Serbia & Spain) enjoys a warm Mediterranean climate. Summer gets cozy and temperatures around 30°/35° C are no exception, especially during July and August. In addition to beautiful hues, autumn also brings slightly milder temperatures that remain very pleasant.
- Eastern Europe (Poland, Georgia) temperatures can rise considerably during the summer months of July and August. The 'golden Polish fall' usually brings pleasant temperatures around 20°C.
- Northern Europe (Denmark, Iceland, Finland, Norway, Sweden) summer it is quite pleasant for those who do not like extreme temperatures. Averages fluctuate around 20°C in Denmark. The further north you go, the lower the temperatures can drop. Mind you here as well exceptions rule. In July 2018, a temperature of 32°C has been recorded in Copenhagen! !
