Finnair has some discount airfare deals in the low $600s still available for travel in July and August from LAX to Tallinn, Estonia or Krakow, Poland. Most locations around Europe are currently priced $800s to $1,000 and up for travel from California in July. Both cities are wonderful locations with plenty of historic architecture to see. Krakow is an amazing place for dining and drinking and there is always something entertaining going on in the city.

I have spent several weeks in Krakow since 2016 and it is one of my favorite cities in Europe. I have hotel reviews for about a dozen properties with plenty of mentions for places to go for food and drink.
Finnair Los Angeles – Helsinki (HEL) – Tallinn (TLL) – Helsinki – Chicago (ORD) – LAX
This ticket has a 22-hour overnight layover in Helsinki, Finland on the outbound. Choice Privileges points offer some great options for cheaper nights in Helsinki than cash rates. You can also book this flight without any overnight layovers for about the same price.
There are a few other destinations in the Baltics and Poland for discount airfare rates flying Finnair. These two places stood out to me as great deals for European travel in July at a time when airfare prices have jumped for most destinations.
