Bucharest sits in the southwest corner of Romania and—like the rest of the country—has a temperate, continental climate, with hot summers and cold winters.

Temperatures peak from June through August, with averages ranging from the low 60s to low 80s. This also coincides with the high tourist season in continental Europe, though Romania is still fairly under the radar and sees far fewer tourists than most of its Western counterparts. June is the wettest month of the year and generally sees about 3 inches of rainfall.

The mercury starts to dip in September, with temperatures dropping to the low 50s to the mid 70s.

January is the coldest month, and temperatures are often around the freezing mark.
