Coming to Romania in January?

Weather in Romania in March

The weather in March in Romania is normally still great for skiing but the weather starts to change in March and the snow normally melts in our village of Breb in March. The winter sledges are put away and the normal wooden carts are hooked back up behind the horses and the muck is spread on the land.

So its possible to go skiing over day in march up in the ski resort 20 minutes from our villas and yet be able to walk around the village with just fleece on and enjoy the locals hospitality with the sun shining down and spring is in the air. Or it can still be very cold and be a meter of snow in the village. If you come and visit us on our Ski Holiday to Romania Tour or any one of our Translvania Tours you will visit other parts of Romania as well as Maramures. Below are the temperatures for Maramures, Bucharest and Cluj Napoca
