As a landlocked country, Slovakia is cut off from the moderating influence of the Atlantic Ocean. Consequently, seasonal weather is more prone to extremes. Winter in Bratslava is mild, but harsh in the mountain region. Summers are typically mild. If you’re traveling during the peak of summer, be prepared for some high temperatures, though it could also be comfortable and pleasant. As fall approaches, some days may be on the cool side, but stints of warm weather still occur and rain is common. By late October, the air is usually brisk and evenings are chilly.
