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 village nearby to a body of water is always ahead of it's other neighbours.

    Very quiet and the views over the harbour are a treat.

    My favourite were the HUGE icebreakers moored during their summer break. They are enormous machines. Good signage dotted around too.

    Ullanlinna is the southernmost district of central Helsinki. The area is known for its waterfront promenades, numerous parks, and stunning art nouveau properties.

    The name Ullanlinna refers to the fortress that was built on a hill during the 18th century under the reign of the Swedish Queen Ulrika Eleonora. In Swedish, Ullanlinna is called as Ulrikasborg.

    The central part of Ullanlinna is marked by the Observatory Park, where is an observatory designed by Carl Ludvig Engel.

    Other notable buildings are the Design Museum, the Museum of Finnish Architecture and the huge neo-Gothic landmark St. John's Church.

    The seashore area is very popular for a stroll or a jog. Here you can find many seaside cafes.
