Ukraine has a mostly temperate climate, however, a more Mediterranean-like climate is found along the resort areas of the southern Crimean coast and Sea of Azov, where summer temps run quite warm.
In general terms, May and June bring warmer temperatures across the country, with very hot days in July somewhat common. Fall is pleasant, while winters can be brutally cold, especially east of the Dnieper River.
