The republic of Serbia, (formerly a constituent republic of the republic of Serbia and Montenegro) is a landlocked country, bordered on the north by Hungary, on the east by Romania and Bulgaria, on the south by Macedonia and Albania, and on the west by Montenegro, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Croatia.
The climatic conditions are typical of eastern Europe with cold winters and warm summers, and here summer is the wettest season. Much of Serbia is mountainous or hilly, and snow lies for long periods in the higher regions.
Serbia includes much low-lying land in the valleys of the Danube, Drave, and Save; here winters are rather cold and rainfall lower.
The table for Belgrade represents conditions in lowland areas of Serbia. Although this table shows many days with rain during the summer months, the rain is often of a showery, thundery type so that the hours of sunshine in summer are not all that fewer than on the Adriatic coast in Montenegro.
