Belarus had a significant influence on the development of town planning
and architecture. Many towns were encircled by walls and towers forming a
developed defensive system. In the most cases fortifications were wooden
but there were walls and towers made partially or wholly of stone.

Gomel is situated in the south-east of Belarus on the picturesque bank of

galleries, cinemas. Central Culture and Rest park attracts children and
adults by its merry-go-rounds and other kinds of entertainment.

number of clinics, research institutes and recreation centers are aimed to
health care of the population.
8 stadiums, 19 swimming pools, Ice Palace, a horse hall and 40 sports
schools provide various facilities for sports and recreation. Certain number
