Introducing Lohja & Around

Lohjanjärvi is the biggest lake in these parts, and most of Helsinki’s residents seem to have a summer cottage here. The woody environs were the stomping ground of Elias Lönnrot, compiler of the Kalevala. The town of Lohja (Swedish: Lojo) keeps the lake houses in beer and supplies, but has few actual sights.
