This church in Lohja was built more 500 years ago. It is in active use and open to the public daily. Known for its paintings inside the church.

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...More

This is a really beautiful old stone church almost in the middle of Lohja city. It is so tall that it can easily be seen from the main street. Free parking place just outside the church.

We were married in St Lauri's church so it will always have a specific place in oir hearts. St Lauri's church is worth visiting especially during Christmas, live candles with traditional Christmas songs.

One of the old churches in Finland that have their old original paintings restored - from the catholic times. Primitive educational paintings - painted for the people who could not read... in 15th century. Beautiful!

Beautiful old church in the middle of Lohja. Parking all around is available. Lovely inside with stained glass, and murals painted on the walls. Lots of history, so read up in advance, as there is not much literature available in English.

The church is one of the biggest in Finland, but of course not as big as many of the cathedrals elsewhere in the world. Great medieval paintings (restored in 1960:s). It is interesting to notice that also the wooden roof is original in the sense...More
