When to go
Like other European countries, the best time to visit is in the shoulder seasons of spring and fall. Spring has a few extra showers but bright and green for those going hiking. Fall is perfect for seeing the entire country as it has warm days and beautiful fall colors and less rain than spring. Summers are nice and warm but high season for local and international travelers. Winter is cold and bleak in some parts but there is nice skiing and enjoyable holiday activities .
