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.

This memorial by sculptor Aarre Aaltonen was erected in 1940 in a park named after Alli Trygg, an ethnographer and a supporter of sobriety.

The high obelisk-like sculpture is made of gray granite and has a text in Finnish: This statue was erected on 13.10.1940 by the 11th Infantry Regiment survivors in memory of their heroic comrades who fell in the war of 1939-1940.

The infantry regiment 11 was a battle unit comprising men from the Sörnäinen and Kallio districts of Helsinki. It was also known as the 'ässä' (ace) regiment.
