Weather

Poland’s climate is temperate with warm (often very hot) summers, crisp, sunny autumns and cold winters. Snow covers the mountainous area in the south of Poland (mid-December to April). Rain falls throughout the year. The most pleasant times to visit Poland are late spring and early summer (mid-May-June) and late summer and early autumn (September and October), when it’s still warm but unlikely to be too hot.
