Cith Life or Life in the Country

of light and shadows
BIG METROPOLIS OR BIG GARDEN? CULTURE OR NATURE? URBAN LIFESTYLE OR RURAL RELAXATION?

It seems that more and more people nowadays are moving to the city, searching for employment, entertainment and excitement. However, there are still many people who yearn for a life in the countryside.

So, which is it? Do you crave the action of the city? Or is the country-life the only way for you? Oxford CultureMania debates the pros and cons of living in the city and living in the countryside.

City Living

The Pros

The Culture – In cities there is no shortage of sights to see, museums to visit, concerts to go to, restaurants to eat at, art galleries to explore, and films and plays to see at the theatre or cinema.

The Convenience – People have everything within easy access thanks to the transport system, or even within walking distance. That is why they don’t need to drive for miles in order to get to work, go shopping, or attend medical appointments.

The Opportunities – Living in a city offers people many opportunities that just aren’t available in small towns or villages. There far are more jobs, flats are more plentiful and many more options for schools and universities.

The Cons

The Stress – City living can be incredibly stressful at times: the traffic, the crowds and noise can sometimes feel overwhelming.

The Crime – There is no doubt that city life is less safe than country life. Crime rates are generally higher and some areas of cities can be dangerous.

The Cost – Living in a city is more expensive no matter if it’s going for a meal, going to the cinema, buying a home or anything else.
