How cold does it get in Finland?

 Posted in Finland forum 

I'm thinking of doing a Masters in Finland and wonder if there are any other expats that can tell me a little bit of how it feels to be living over there. Most of all - I wonder how cold it gets in winter? I've heard horrible stories about freezing cold winter - is this true?

    Hi,

    Here is some information about Finland.

    The Finnish winter hardship depends where you are staying in the country (south, Helsinki area or west, Lapland). In Helsinki area normally -5 to -10-15. In Lapland normally -10 to -25-30 and winter months September-March.

    In the summer really good weather, beautiful place to be.
