Best time to visit Serbia

Serbia's north is marked by long cold winters and sweltering summers – plan to start your travels early in the interior in particular to avoid midday meltdown – while the south has a typical Adriatic climate. From late autumn onwards the mountain ranges become impassable; in some areas the skiing season begins in November and lasts until April.

The best time to visit Serbia for good weather is during the summer months but, beyond the massive EXIT Festival in early July (which draws revellers from across Europe), Serbia doesn't see huge influxes of visitors, making it an ideal spot to avoid the crowds just about year-round.
