Podstrana

Podstrana is a community situated between Zrnovnica River and Mutogras hill.
The community consists of five parts. The oldest part lying beneath the steep cliff of Perun Mountain at a height of 380 m above sea level named Selo (village). The other four settlements: Strozanac, Grljevac, Sveti Martin and Mutogras are situated along the Adriatic road. Not far from Split, these places extend along 6 km of accessible coast which abounds in sandy beaches with rich Mediterranean vegetation, pine wood and tamarinds. Small comfortable and well equipped family houses, with more than a thousand beds, and campgrounds, offering great hospitality and providing an excellent vacation, while local restaurants and inns offer the most tasty domestic food and specialties. Podstrana is known for the production of large quantities of high quality vegetables, lettuce in the first place and the production of fruit. Orchards with well-known peaches from that region offer the best summer fruit.
The nearness of Split, which is only 8 km away, makes it possible for the guests to visit museums, exhibitions and the Split Summer Festival. Mild climate makes your stay pleasant even out of the season and mountain hikers can enjoy climbing the slopes just over the main road.

Climate

Podstrana region enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate with mild and rainy winters and warm and dry summers with a large number of sunny hours annually. In regard of Split clima of Podstrana is mostly different considering the local winds. Winds "bura" and "jugo" blow with less strength in Podstrana than in Split while freshing wind "maestral" blows with more strength in hot summer days in Podstrana region.

This region boasts very clear skies. There is an average of 2700 hours of sunshine, i.e. a daily average of 7,3 hrs.In the summer, it rises even to an average of 11,3 hours, 7,4 hours in the spring, 6,3 hours in the autumn, and 4,2 hours in the winter.

This high rate of sunny weather has an influence on the relatively high yearly and daily temperature of the air. The mean air temperature is 16,0oC. January is in average the coldest (7,7oC), and July is the warmest (25,6oC ) month of the year. That is why the coastal part of Central Dalmatia is one of the sunniest regions of the central part of the northern Mediterranean.

This favourable climate and the flow of warm sea currents have an influence on the high temperature of the sea, with a summer average of 22,6o C, that is, an average yearly approximate of 17,5oC.

The local and periodical (seasonal) winds also help to maintain a favourable climate. Among them, the most distinct are the local winds "jugo" (south-east wind) and the "bura" (north-east wind), which show up during the entire year, but especially well marked during the winter, when their bioclimatic activity is at it's peak. In the early spring and summer, the most characteristic wind is the Maestral which has important thermoregulation activity, because as it is a sea wind, it brings a favourable coolness.The Maestral is replaced by the night breeze from the north (burin), which cools the overheated dry land.

Rainfall on the this area also has Mediterranean characteristics. It amounts to only 809 mm yearly, but it is favourably dispersed, so that the spring and especially the summer is mostly dry, while moderate rains fall in autumn and winter season. Snow is an exceptionally rare phenomenon.
