Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The intention of the many organizations funding this mismatched combination of elements for the memory of women in wartime must have been good. What did known sculptor Heikki Häiväoja have in mind when he designed this monstruosity in 1996? Only when taking a closer look you notice the silhouttes of women shadowed by the great fallic symbol.

This memorial by sculptor Heikki Häiväoja was unveiled in 1996. It is the first national memorial honoring and commemorating the work done by women during the war years of 1939-1945.

The sculpture comprises an 8-meter steel tower and a 7.5-meter wide slab cut from grey Kuru granite. The slab contains reliefs depicting women working at the home front and on the war front.
