Snow Brings Croatia To A Standstill

Croats around the country woke up to a thick blanket of snow on Saturday morning as the snow storm which hit much of Europe yesterday passed over Croatia. Traffic has been paralysed in most parts of the country, with buses and trams cancelled and motorists warned not to use their cars.

The state met office said that between 10 and 30cm’s of snow fell in low land areas, whilst in the Gorski Kotar and Lika regions up to 50cm. Zagreb’s Sljeme registered over 60cms. The northern Adriatic and islands close to the coast, Krk and Cres, recorded around 10cm of snow.

Snow is expected to continue into the afternoon as Zagreb International Airport closed this morning. “From 3:30am we have had workers cleaning full steam, the wind is causing a huge problem and I advise all passengers to check the web site for details about their flight,” said the airport spokesperson.

Around 30cm of snow is expected to fall during Saturday.
