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 monument was built in the Soviet era to commemorate the fallen soldiers of the Red Army. The inscription on the monument - to the "defenders and liberators" of Saaremaa - clearly reflects the political views of the Soviet side and is probably something that few Estonians these days would identify with.

    Yet for all that, stopping by the monument does give you an opportunity to think about the troubled past and perhaps reflect on the brutality of war that took place there not all that long ago. Even more so, all the politics aside, it is a very quiet, tranquil spot much like many other historic battlefields.

    We took the time to walk around the nearby beach and forest, which is absolutely stunning, with plenty of moss and mushrooms. The contrast between the beauty of nature and the man-made horrors of war makes this a very special place.

    This local museum and interpretive centre exhibited the history of the herring fishing industry around Saaremaa. It was a very interesting museum and we were glad we were able to see this place. A low key, but very informative visit!!

    A nice little park close to the beach. The wooden statues are quite nice and fun for kids to climb for a while. Nothing spectacular, but on a lively day a nice place to spend a moment or have a picnic.

    Two ship wrecks were discovered in Salme in 2008. It is unique in the entire Europe. Today, a row of concrete benches indicates the size of the ships and an information board stand at the site. Was definetely worth a visit.
