I haven't been in the Scandinavian countries, but I have been in Russia, Ukraine and Poland in the winter, and that's cold enough for me. I was once in the city of Petrozavodsk, northern Russia, about 100 km from the Finish border, but that was in the spring and the weather was very nice. My desire is to go back to Siberia, only this time during the winter season. In what country do you live? Your name sounds Polski.
