The Met Office has issued a warning as an extreme cold front is set to sweep across Croatia next week.
Winter will show its teeth next week with March set to welcome in bitterly cold temperatures. Next week, on the first day of March, temperatures are forecast to drop to an icy -20 °C.
Heavy snow will start falling tonight around the country and continue falling for the next 48 hours for parts of inland Croatia, including in the capital Zagreb.
The snow will stop in parts on the weekend as temperatures begin to sharply drop into the minuses. Next week will start off in Zagreb with lows of around -12 °C, before dropping even further on the 1st of March when lows of -20 °C are forecast.
The Met Office has issued a red-alert warning and has advised people not to travel if they do not need to due to the extreme conditions.

Cold bura winds are forecast for the coast, bringing a bitter cold feel-factor with it as the front makes its way from Siberia.
