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 statue of Nils Ericson (1802–1870) in front of the main entrance to Stockholm’s central railway station was the first of many we saw during our stay in the city. As a mechanical engineer, Nils Ericson designed a large number of canals and locks in Sweden and led their construction (Albrektsund, Karlstad, Dalsland, Stallbacka, Säffle, and Trollhätte). After 1850, he did the same for the state-owned railway system. His rather traditional bronze statue, resting on a high granite pedestal, was inaugurated in 1893. Sculptor Johan (John) Börjeson (1835–1910) represented Ericson as a well-dressed gentleman in a relaxed pose. The seagulls show the great man no respect.
