Summer (June through August)

The middle-year months have very comfortable weather with high temperatures that are comfortable. These months see the most precipitation with 4 to 6 days of precipitation per month. June – August is the busiest season for tourism in Romania, so lodging and other accommodations may cost more than usual.
