Spring Snow In Croatia

The calendar might say spring, but Croatia woke to a blanket of snow, ice and hurricane winds on Monday, which caused havoc on the roads up and down the country.

Around 20cm of snow fell yesterday and the met office has predicted another drop of between 5-10cm on Tuesday. Motorways were closed and ferry lines from Split to the Croatian islands of Brac, Hvar, Korcula, Lastovo and Vis were cancelled.

Zagreb Mayor Milan Bandic has urged citizens to catch public transport to work on Tuesday. The situation over the rest of Europe was not much better. It has been the coldest March in the last 50 years in the UK, whilst schools in parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland were closed as roads closed.
