The country enjoys a continental climate, characterized by rather cold winters and hot summers. However, frequent climatic changes may occur during the year. This is mainly due to the shape of the country and its position, especially in the Danube area.
The Capital, is probably the city where the winter cold makes itself felt more; as, moreover, the area to the north, on the border with Romania. In the south, however, by approaching Greece and Turkey, temperatures are never too low. The coldest winter months remain January and February, especially when the icy currents coming from Russia expire. In suitcase, always with sweaters, warm clothes, scarf and gloves.
Autumn and Spring have pleasant temperatures, albeit with frequent changes in temperature. Starting in May and throughout June, afternoon thunderstorms are frequent.
In summer, the heat is felt above all in the plains where the 35 grades are exceeded, abundantly, and the heat becomes almost torrid. The black sea breeze is felt especially in the coastal cities and in those close to it. This is the case of Sunny Beach, Burgas or Varga, ideal for a holiday of sun and sea in July and August. Remember to pack light clothes for the day, sweatshirt and pants for the evening.
