MARYINA GORKA, 24 July (BelTA) – Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko went to see the AkvaMarin swimming pool recently built in Maryina Gorka during his working trip to Pukhovichi District on 24 July, BelTA has learned.

This is one of the most beautiful corners of our Belarus. Quite young, green. Happy city day to you all! Should you need some help, please, do not hesitate to ask,” Aleksandr Lukashenko assured.
