Living in country side or city has been a big discussion between people. Some people prefer to live in cities and they children have a better life there however others hold the opposite idea which is living in countryside. Both of these ideas have its own advantages and disadvantages.
Everything always has two side is good things and bad things. Living in the city or countryside does not matter, the most important thing is your thoughts and your hobbies. Some people think that the city has more modern life, higher education and better health care.
Living in the countryside has a lot of advantages, but also many disadvantages. As the advantage we can consider the fact that 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 condition, 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 annoying traffic jams. In the country you are free to admire the breathtaking landscapes such as huge meadows, peaceful hills or forests. You can enjoy walking in the forest and picking mushrooms or hunting. Another advantage is that you may easily build a big house and the garden, because charges for ground are much lower than in the suburb.
Moreover, living in the countryside is cheaper than it is in the city, so you probably may afford many other things, because the prices are lower. What is more, you can invite your friends to the barbecue organized in your garden. It would be great! The other positive side is the safety. In the rural area the crime rate is much lower. There aren’t a lot of housebreaks and the possibility of burglary is also lower. In the countryside people usually and keep eyes on neighbor’s estates. They always react when something strange is happening. Country life is very peaceful and silent. You will enjoy the feeling of peace.
Living in the city easy access to shopping, different kinds of restaurants, and cultural events. Plenty of people to choose from in finding friends. Usually good hospitals/medical care. Travel is easier – airports, trains. Laws usually control things like loose dogs and prohibit inappropriate land use, such as a factory in a residential area. More kinds of jobs available. Better access to universities.
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. The easy access to shops and other institutions are the great advantage.
