In the Samobor area, the influence of these phenomena is somewhat milder, which enhances the peculiarity of this area.
The results are extremely favourable living conditions. The climate is moderate, with markedly warm summers; cool winters and with an optimum of precipitation (about 800 mm a year). Lush, largely deciduous forests cover the highlands and the pastures at the highest altitudes, providing a natural habitat for a large and diverse animal and plant communities. Endemic species are also not rare (Blagay’s daphne, holly, etc.) The altitude ranges from 130 m to 1100 m.
The particularity of the climate is manifested in the fact that the temperatures here are 1 to 2 degrees Celsius lower than in neighbouring Zagreb (20 km to the northeast). Summers are, therefore, more agreeable – not so hot, and winters cooler – which allows for a longer snow cover. Thanks to the ruggedness of the relief, wind currents and vegetation, there is no smog in the area. The weather conditions, therefore, can be summarized in two words: healthy climate.
