Kyröskoski is a 22 meters high rapid. Kyröskoski is considered to be the Hämeen Hälläpyörä mentioned in the Kalevala.

Industrialization on the banks of the rapids began in the 1860s. There is currently a Metsä Board Kyro paper mill in the area. Today, the plant is powered by energy generated by a biopower plant completed in 2012.

Throughout its history, Kyröskoski has also fascinated artists, writers and explorers.
