Serbia has four seasons. Winter starts in December and lasts till March. On average almost thirty days a year it snows in Belgrade (Beograd). In general significantly more snow falls in the southern half of Serbia. Here you will find different mountain ranges and due to the higher altitudes, it is generally colder which means more snow.

Starting mid-March, the chances of pleasant weather do increase. April, marking the start of spring, often sees days with temperatures around 18°C or more. Spring is relatively short, as summer typically begins by the end of May. The official summer months—June, July, and August—have warm, sunny days.

September often continues to have summer-like days before autumn sets in around October. Autumn brings a noticeable drop in temperatures, with average afternoon temperatures decreasing significantly.

The best time to visit Serbia is from May to September. However, July and August can bring extreme heat, with afternoon temperatures occasionally reaching around 35°C, which can be uncomfortable for some visitors. For city trips, such as to Belgrade, April, May, September, or October are ideal, offering pleasant temperatures without excessive heat. While June is the wettest month, spring and autumn generally have moderate precipitation levels. Serbia also offers beautiful experiences in winter.
