Medjugorje climate: when to go to Medjugorje

Medjugorje is situated in the southern part of Bosnia-Herzegovina in a vast plain, surrounded by mountains, a few kilometers from the Adriatic sea, in a position that is about half way between Split and Dubrovnik (Ragusa).

Because of its position, the climate of Medjugorje is influenced by the nearby presence of the sea and the continentality coming from the inland areas of the Balkan peninsula. These influences make the climate of Medjugorje very hot and dry in summer, and relatively wet and relatively cold in winter.

During the winter, the snow is often found in the mountains that surround the village, in Medjugorje temperatures rarely drop below freezing, but the breath of bora makes it seem even colder than the real ones. In winter the rains are very frequent, the wettest months are those that go from October to March.
