The Republic of Croatia is a state in the west of the Balkan Peninsula, the former Union Republic of Yugoslavia. It borders with Slovenia, Hungary, Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Montenegro; in the west, it is washed by the Adriatic Sea.
The eastern part of the country (Slavonia) is a hilly plain, intersected by the valleys of the Sava and Drava rivers, the central and western parts of the country are occupied by the heavily dissected Dinar upland (the highest point is Dinara, 1831 m.) With extensive karst fields. The narrow strip of the Adriatic coast (Dalmatia) is mountainous and is riddled with numerous bays.

In Croatia, there are two types of climate – continental and Mediterranean. On the coast of Croatia and on the islands the climate is the Mediterranean. In summer the average air temperature is +24-26 C. However, in Istria the average air temperature in the summer is slightly less -+22 C.
The climate in the interior of Croatia, including Zagreb and Slavonia, is continental because this part of Croatia is separated from the Adriatic coast by the Dinaric mountains. In July, in internal Croatia, the average air temperature is +22 C, and in winter ranges from -2 to -4 C.
In winter, there is a lot of snow in the mountains of Croatia, which guarantees a long ski season.
