Common description

Great Britain


Great Britain has a temperate ocean climate with a large number of rains throughout the year. Temperatures vary with the season, but rarely fall below −11 ° C or rise above 35 ° C. The main winds come from the southwest and often bring cold and wet weather from the Atlantic Ocean, however, the eastern parts of the country are mostly protected from these winds, and since most of the precipitation falls in the western regions, the eastern ones are the driest. The Atlantic currents warmed up by the Gulf Stream bring mild winters, sometimes there are snowfalls in winter and early spring, although snow usually does not last long.


Pound Sterling is the third largest reserve currency in the world (after the US dollar and the euro)
