which |km2|abbr=on}}

The municipality is bilingual, although it is not required by the law, with majority being Finnish and minority Swedish speakers.

Lohja has been a focal point for the population and economy of Western Uusimaa since the early 14th century. Lohja was renowned as a trading centre already in the Middle Ages. The local inhabitants were among the pioneers of the Finnish mining and construction material industries. By Finnish standards, Lohja has long-established traditions in horticulture and especially in market gardening. These traditions are represented by the symbols of present-day Lohja: limestone and an apple.

Lohja is advantageously located near the Helsinki Metropolitan Area and it benefits from a good road network. It takes less than an hour to drive from Helsinki to Lohja.

The landscape of Lohja is characterized by manors and gardens. The Lohja area is divided by the ridge Lohja, which forms a watershed for the largest lake system of Southern Finland, Lohjanjärvi. Though the centre of the downtown area is marked by the St. Lawrence church, dating from the Middle Ages, the rest of the central area is marked by a hetrogenous mix of buildings mostly dating from the 1960s onwards. The new Lohja Library, opened in 2005, is a distinctly modern building placed in the very centre of the town.

The municipality of Lohjan kunta was consolidated with Lohja in 1997. The municipality of Sammatti was consolidated with Lohja in 2009. The municipality of Karjalohja will be consolidated with Lohja in 2013.
