Different spheres of Belarusian art and first of all architecture, were connected not only with Russian art but also with Eastern Europe art and with Western Medieval art. This is one of the peculiarities of Belarusian architecture. For centuries architects engineers, artists of different nationalities (Italians, Flamands, French, Germans, Belgians, Poles, Lithuanians, Russians) worked here. Frequent wars on the territory of 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 river Sozh. Gomel today is a huge regional city with highly developed infrastructure and large number of industrial enterprises which produce competitive products known worldwide. Large number of its universities and colleges welcome thousands of students annually. Gomel is also a cultural centre of Belarus.

theatres, a circus which is popular not only with children, but also with adults, a Philharmonic, 18 libraries, lots of interesting museums and galleries, cinemas. Central Culture and Rest park attracts children and adults by its merry-go-rounds and other kinds of entertainment.
