The church is built (in my knowledge )sometimes 1500.It has seen many wars and fires ,but still have beautiful paintings in the sealing and on the walls!My favorite is the enormous (in Finnish churhes) window, Wich have the most beautiful painting on the glas. Look for the eye on the top!Usually the doors are open in the summer and there might be a guide ,otherwise there's usually on Sundays 10 o'clock a seremony. Even if you don't understand Finnish (or swedish ) language, you have time to look at all the small,beatiful details and paintings and listen to the music.Take a walk in the grave yard,old family graves ,several hundred years old,with own fences!A really beatiful and peaceful place.

If you are Lohja area, remember to make short stop here. They have also Concerts like Xmas carrolls here too.
Finnish lutheran churches differ from Central European ones, especially from catholic ones. Finnish churches are very plain, no golden glitter. Lohja church has beautiful paintings on limestone background, as there is a limestone mine almost directly underneath it, worth also visiting.
If you can't make to Lohja, there is another very similar church close to Helsinki Airport with same name and look.

Gently deepening sandy beach, grass and shading trees, children's playground and a nice summer cafe Kahvila Kesähattu on the shore. Boat docks for boaters; many of them are going to their summer cottages for the weekend. Later in the evening young people gather to the beach to drink some beer.
Quite nearby is the Porla area with ponds, there you can see water birds swimming as well in the Lohjanjärvi (Lake Lohja) Also beach volley field and a few simple fitness devices.
From here you can walk along the beach to nearby Liessaari Nature Trail.

The trail is about 2 kilometers long and quite well marked with informative boards. There are hazel plants (Corylus avellana), at spring time wood anemones (Anemone nemorosa), hepaticas (Anemone hepatica) and plenty of birds singing specially In the mornings and at sunset. Also spruce, pine and birch trees. Great lake views from the old quarry. There is also a campfire site and lean-to shelter at Liessaari.
The wellness trail boards offer information how visitors can draw on nature's healing powers to promote their own sense of wellness while the nature information boards on the old trail provide an insight into the island's lush nature.
You can park your car at Haikarinniemi parking point, Haikarinkatu 22. Then you go over the bridge and walk along the nature trail or spend some time at the sandy beach. The beach is quite popular at summer but I find the trail most interesting at spring time. You can easily spend here more than 2 hours.

You must give the smokes sauna a try followed by a jump in the pond and connect with way things have been done of old. This place also offers lots of side activities in the surrounding area is full of beautiful places and things to see

The Lohja Museum is situated near the medieval church. The garden is beautiful in the summer time and there is a standing exhibition describing e.g. the Lohja manor culture. This summer there has been also an additonal exhibition of lovely dollhouses.
I really loved the garden with perennials and small pavilion. Also the two main land marks of Lohja can be seen there, water tower and the high tower of the Tytyri mine. Entirety was a suprise even for a local resident.
Go and see at least the garden if you are not interested of the historic exhibition inside the museum.

Church has been built in 1754-1755 and the bell-tower in 1763. The church has been restored in 1954 and both church and the bell-tower repaired and redecorated in 2000-2002. The altarpiece was donated by Elias Lönnrot in 1879 on the memory of his deceased daughter and there is space for appr. 300 people.
Next to the church is an old grain storehouse (vilja-aitta) of which the first records can be found dating back to 1804. Around the church is a cemetery with soldiers' tombs from World War I and Second World War and memorial for those remained in Karelia among the tombstones of local people.
