Generally seen, there isn’t much difference between autumn and winter. While experiencing heavy showers in late autumn, you will meet beautiful sunny days followed by higher temperatures in winter. The average winter temperatures vary between 9 and 14 °C. Very often, the temperatures can be well over the average, so you can go for a walk just in one’s shirt-sleeves.
Sunrises and sunsets have special charm in winter, especially the latter, because of the reflexion of the last sun rays an the mountain of Biokovo, what you can see on the photographs added in the picture gallery.
The Mediterranean is a God-given area, especially its parts surrounded by a mountain range (massif), as we have it here. In only forty minutes you can experience two totally different climates, namely, that’s the time you need to reach the first snowdrifts.
