Keuruu is a city of lakes and forests

Keuruu got its first permanent inhabitants in the 1560s after Kustaa Vaasa had given his mighty order to inhabit the wilderness. The wilderness holdings of the people of Satakunta and Häme were mainly occupied by Savo plant growers, for whom the pristine forests of the area provided the most ideal living conditions.
