It is cold in winter - but summers can be hot with the long days. The Gulf of Finland is part of the Baltic Sea. They are both relatively shallow and less salty - owing to inflowing rivers and the constricted connection to the North Sea through the Danish Straits.

While the Baltic freezes in winter - in summer it warms up nicely. Living in a summer cottage on the coast near Stockholm my bath nights were in the Baltic. You could buy a special soap that would lather in that brackish water. Near the end of October the water started to get colder - and felt more like an English coastal sea summer temperature.
