CITY LIFE
Advantages and disadvantages of living in cities
My personal attitude toward cities and living there
Every now and then we ask ourselves whether it’ s better to
live in a city our in a countryside.
I haven’ t yet decided for myself whether I want to spend my
whole life in a city or not. City life has its advantages and
disadvantages.
First of all, it is easier to find work in the city than in the
country, besides, salaries are much higher and one has a larger
variety of jobs to pick from.
Moreover, cities are the centers of culture and social life. Living
in a city one has all sorts of museums, music halls, theatres,
exhibitions, movie theatres, pubs, restaurants and night clubs at
their command. Therefore there are a lot more free time facilities
than in rural areas.
Cities are also centers of education. Many young people move to
cities because there are more opportunities for continuing their
education there. Usually country’ s largest and best
universities are located in big cities, as for example Sorbonne in
Paris or Moscow State University in the capital of Russia.
Another advantage it better living conditions. In the city people
live in more modern houses which need less work doing to them. That
saves a great part of their time and effort.
Among the disadvantages there are crime, pollution, high prices,
enormous traffic jams and overcrowded streets and subway and of course
the threat of the present – terrorism.
From the point of view of ecology cities are not the best place to
live in. Garbage and sewage are two major problems of cities as well
as air and water pollution .
Besides it’ s not safe in terms of crime. For example, I
wouldn’ t walk back home late in the evening alone in Moscow.
It’ s dangerous I think. One can either get robbed of their
purse, jewelry or mobile phone or even get raped , for example.
One has to watch out for pickpockets even in the daylight. You have
to be very careful in crowded places as markets and underground for
example. Once one of my friends was on the underground, it was a day
time, and her cell phone was snatched right out of her hands just as
the train was coming into the station and of course they got off
straight away and she could do nothing about it. Moreover most of the
thieves are carrying knives, which means if you resist you can get
badly hurt.
People who get attacked by robbers more frequently are foreign
tourists, I think. They are easy targets, they stand out in the crowd.
Thieves know they are probably carrying money and documents and they
don’ t speak the language and they are vulnerable therefore.
Thus, no matter whether one is a visitor or a citizen, they have to
be sensible and keep their eyes open.
I moved from my small hometown to Moscow five years ago with the
intention to enter a University and be able to get an interesting and
wellpaid job in the future. I have never regretted this decision. One
