Town & Country

Living in the country and living in the city are two very different lifestyles. They both have


advantages and disadvantages in many areas.

Nowadays the majority of people prefer living in a city. Also this is the well known fact that there are more people in cities than in the country. Those who like living in the city believe that it has a large number of advantages. First, the big offer of the options for spending free time. For instance people can visit various museums, cinemas, and libraries.

 Second, there are a lot of working places in the city. The biggest companies are located in the cities. Therefore, it is easier for people to find suitable jobs in a city. Also, people have more variants in choosing their career.

Third, you can buy whatever you need if you live in a city. In opposite, people who live in the country don’t have wide choice of shops. Also people are able to use different kinds of services. For example a laundry, a car wash, a beauty salon. In the contrast, there is not any variety of services in a village. 


Although living in the city has many advantages there are some disadvantages, too. The cost of living is very high in the city. Most goods are very expensive. There is no fresh air and pure water. The environment is polluted with dust, smoke, garbage and dioxide gases from factories. Most of the people who live in the city are corrupted. So there are lots of crimes in the cities. The streets are dusty and dirty. So it is hard to lead a healthy life in the city.
Other people, who prefer the country, say that there are more advantages of living in villages than in cities.

 First, the country is less polluted and the traffic isn’t so heavy. You are fit and you don’t need to worry about your health conditions, because in the countryside the air and water are so clean. In the country there are many plant species. There aren’t any huge blocks of flats, modern skyscrapers or bothersome traffic jams.

Second, people, living in a village, feel themselves in safety. The crime rate in a country is lower than in a city.

Third, people, living in a village are friendlier. The country offers a quieter and peaceful style of living.

However, the unemployment rate is much higher than in the city. It can be also a problem to access  hospitals, schools, police stations and shops, which are usually located far from the village.


To sum up, I think that living in the country may have a lot of advantages such as fresh air, breathtaking landscapes and comfort, but a lot of people decide to stay in the city, due to the fact that the life in the town is easier. In my opinion, life in a country is quiet and slow. Therefore, it is more suitable for children and old people. I prefer living in a big city, where I can have a large number of opportunities.
