Parts of Croatia, including areas in the capital Zagreb, were greeted with snow on Friday morning…

Gorski Kotar, Lika, and central and western Croatia all were hit with snow early on Friday. Zavižan in the Northern Velebit National Park was hit with the most snow (74 cm), whilst around 40 cm fell in Delnice in western Croatia and on Zagreb’s Sljeme. It was a big contrast in the capital Zagreb however with parts in the north and west of the city under snow, and the rest of the city just a few kilometres away completely snow-free. It is not expected to hang around however with the forecast for it to clear up later in the day. Some photos below of the parts of Zagreb who enjoyed the covering on Friday.
