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 cultural center of Vanha Paukku is situated in the old cartridge factory, which was opened in 1923. There are free museums, art exhibitions, a library, some factory outlets and at least two restaurants there. These were very interesting. We also ate very good and cheap lunch buffets in the restaurant Iso Prässi.

Vanha Paukku has several interesting targets. The museums offer a great knowledge package of the old cartridge factory that used to operate here. For the first time in my life I actually felt INTERESTED in whatever there was on display, points for that! I had no chance to see any performances in the theatre but I have heard that its worth it. Also the river cruise was not operating, but the ferry stood out for its looks! The art and camera exhibitions were quite tempting alike. Culture people will love this place in full scale.

We had a short visit to this center with our relatives. The location used to be an ammunition factory that exploded in the 1970s with catastrophic results. Forty people died. This culture center is built on the remains of the factory and depicts the history of the factory as well as modern culture in the area. The center also has the city library of the town Lapua within the center.
