We study a class of statistical systems which simulate 3D gonihedric system on euclidean lattice. We have found the exact partition function of the 3D-model and the corresponding critical indices analysing the transfer matrix K(Pi,Pf) which describes the propagation of loops on a lattice. The connection between 3D gonihedric system and 2D-Ising model is clearly seen.
