The paper presents the results of current velocity measurements which were carried out below the thermocline ‎in the eastern part of the Gulf of Finland in the second half of July 2010. It was found that the structure of ‎water circulation in the region is generally cyclonic in nature. Comparison of calculated geostrophic velocities ‎with instrumental measurements showed a qualitative agreement only for the direction of currents. The meas-‎ured modules of current velocity exceeded its values calculated by the dynamic method by two to eight times.‎
