Croatia - Geography
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
1 Croatia is situated in southeast Europe to the west of the Balkan Peninsula along the Adriatic Sea. It borders Slovenia and Hungary to the north, Serbia to the northeast, Bosnia and Herzegovina to the east, and Montenegro to the southeast. Its capital city is Zagreb, located in north-central Croatia. The country is nearly twice the size of Belgium or a little smaller than West Virginia.
2 Croatia's land is divided into three different parts: the Pannonian, Peri-Pannonian, and Adriatic. The Pannonian and Peri-Pannonian can be found in the northern and eastern parts of Croatia. In these areas lie lowlands, hills, and short mountains where farming is very common.
3 Along the Adriatic coast, Croatia's temperatures are very mild, but further inland it can be a bit cooler, especially in winter. For example, in Zagreb, the average daily high temperature in the summer is 27 degrees Celsius and during the winter drops to 2 degrees Celsius. At the same time, the coast is protected from cold northern winds by tall mountains along Croatia's shores, and winters are very warm there.
