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.

A tribute to one of the leading lights in 19th century astronomy and a major contributor toward accurate surveying, the Struve Monument is worth stopping to see while you're exploring the Tartu University campus.

A symbolic monument to the greatest ?Estonian astronomer. Not worth a special visit, but worth looking at when visiting the Old Observatory.

To see this arch needs walking up the hill. If you like to walk and see the city from above, it would be a nice activity.

Monument is quite modern, but the area around and the hill where Struve worked is worth to look at! And try to feel or to imagine Struve's triangulation chain at the beginning of 19th century.

When you visit this monument you really must hear the story behind it, just above is the Observatory which itself has extremely interesting history.

If you make the University of Tartu Observatory one of the sites you visit, then you will see the geodetic arch. It is a concrete structure honoring the scientist.
