Croatia’s Adriatic Sea is one of the clearest and cleanest stretches of water in the world.

Croatia’s long coastline means there are differences in temperature depending on where you are swimming. During summer the sea temperature is measured 3 times a day with a special thermometer.

Temperatures are measured at 8:00 am, 3:00 pm and again at 10:00 pm. So how warm does the Adriatic Sea get and which parts are the warmest?

Daily Vecernji list employed the help of Zeljko Sore from the Met Office to find out the highest recorded temperatures in history. Here the are the highest 11 recorded Adriatic Sea temperatures in Croatia.
