Summer is in full swing, and although it can get very hot in August and September, it still is a great time for hiking the countryside and exploring the medieval cities. The north (Maramures) may enjoy more pleasant conditions than the south of the country.
Milder temperatures, lesser crowds and more hotel availability make this a lovely time to tour the country. It may rain in October, but that is unpredictable and never in large spells.
Technically the low season, owing to chilly temperatures. Outdoor activities like trekking, biking and horse-riding almost cease, but the cities are still good to visit, with virtually no crowds and rock-bottom prices. Christmas is quite festive, and December to February is peak skiing season for powder-lovers.
