Climate of Romania

   In the following article we propose to discuss the climate issue in Romania.

As is well known, Romania is a country located in the south-eastern part of central Europe in the northern hemisphere, which means that, viewed as a whole, the climate in Romania is temperate-continental-moderate, making the transition between the climate of Western Europe, dominated by oceanic influences, that of Eastern Europe with excessive continental characters, and that of southern Europe - with Mediterranean influences.

The climate of the country varies according to the area of ​​relief so that in mountain areas, valley and depressions the temperatures are lower than in the plain areas, for example, but the presence of atmospheric currents

Temperatures range from an average of 8 degrees Celsius in the north to a mean of 12 degrees Celsius in the south, the precipitations are higher in the mountain range and somewhat lower in the seaside region. There are some explanations to be made regarding climate change in Romania:

  • The north of Moldova is influenced by the Baltic climate, with harsh winters and snow. The cold air masses arriving from the north make the regions of Suceava and the upper part of the Eastern Carpathians accessible between spring and autumn.
  • At the opposite end, the western and south-western Mediterranean influences, especially in the Western Plain, Western Hills, Banat Mountains and a section of the Oltenia Plain on the west of Olt, bring more rain in the winter, feeling full the Auster.
  • The most sunny regions of Romania are those under the influence of the Pontic climate, the seaside and the Danube Delta. Here we have the least rainfall in the country and an average annual temperature of around 10 degrees Celsius.

Romania is a tourist destination throughout the year, not just seasonal, but it is fair, there is season and extra season depending on the destination chosen.

Thus, a holiday in December or January in the mountain area will be the full season, which also influences the prices directly. Similarly, the summer months (June to September) are peak seasons for the seaside, and the prices will be higher during this period. However, it can also be visited in extra-season, this fact having considerable advantages, not only financially, but also the likes of those who do not like agglomerations.

As for the capital, Bucharest has a temperate continental climate. Given that atmospheric temperatures change dramatically from a maximum of 40 degrees Celsius in summer to a minimum of -20 degrees Celsius in winter, it is self-evident that Bucharest should be recommended as a holiday destination during the spring and autumn, when air temperature values ​​tend to stabilize around 20 degrees Celsius.
