Lightning show over the Adriatic sea over the past several days

Going on holidays? Love thunderstorms? We got just the place for you. The Adriatic sea, particularly the northern part is the lightning capital of Europe and it definitely lived up to its name over the past week or so!

The region was hit by severe thunderstorms on June 25 and again on June 28, with further thunderstorms occurring almost daily! See the gallery below:
