When to go to Slovakia
Here are some valuable information, to choose the best time when to go to Slovakia. The climate of the country is temperate and continental, variable depending on the area and, above all, the altitude.
The Capital, and much of the area located to the west, is predominantly flat with cold temperatures in winter, and a few hours of sunshine during the day. In summer, however, the temperatures are quite pleasant, especially at night. There are, however, particularly sultry days, with temperatures perceived well beyond the 30 degrees. From May to September, the days get longer, and the sun shines quite often during the day.
Winter is particularly rigid at high altitude. The area of the Carpathians, where the Tatra Mountains are located, is where the highest altitudes are registered. The High Tatras, on the border with Poland, are a rather popular ski destination for snow lovers. Here, the winters are freezing and full of snow, with average temperatures of -7 degrees. In the summer, instead, the afternoon thunderstorms are quite frequent, before leaving space to the sun.
