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.

Well worth a detour to visit this small but very well-presented museum. Exhibitions when we were there described the careers of locally-born world's strongest man and of an opera singer. As well as the usual local exhibits there was an interesting exhibition about a successful collective farm and those who worked on it as well as a number of family histories detailing the fates of deportees to Siberia in 1941. We were the only visitors (it was out of season) and the attendant was very helpful and detailed in his explanations.
