The climate shows great differences, which are mainly related to the location in relation to the sea and the altitude. The interior has a strong continental climate, while the coasts have a maritime climate. Depressions, on average about five per year, occur only during the cold season and then cross the Black Sea or the Mediterranean Sea, but never the central highlands. Their influence does not exceed a few dozen kilometers inland. As a result, very low temperatures occur in the interior. In front of the Mediterranean depressions, desert winds also carry dry, warm air inland, particularly in the spring. In the summer, northern winds blow under the influence of the low pressure above Asia. The coasts are then cooler than inland, just the opposite of the winter situation. Except along the coast, in particular of the Black Sea, precipitation is low and highly variable. The best travel time for a sun holiday with acceptable temperatures are the months of May, June, September and October. The last two months are also particularly suitable for water sports enthusiasts. The seawater is then at its warmest.
