Should a city try to preserve its old, historic buildings or destroy them and replace them with modern buildings? Use specific reasons and examples to support your opinion.
Nowadays it is a vexed problem whether to preserve historical buildings or to destroy them in order to build modern ones. From my viewpoint we should try to prevent ancient buildings from destructions. This is the only way to sustainable development of urban environment. The reasons for my opinion are listed below.
First of all, every old building represents an important piece of history. They can not just remember many famous historical events but also tell us a lot about architectural and ornamental techniques which people used several centuries ago. We can make conclusions about the way of community’s organization and the level of development of civilization in a particular area. For instance, thorough investigations of the Pyramids have helped to get to the heart of the mysteries of Egyptian Pharaohs and local traditions.
Secondly, we must do everything to safe historical buildings for future generations. I would be perfect if our children could know about the greatest architectural buildings not from our stories and pictures in books but from visiting them. What is more, historical buildings are useful teaching bases for children. I still remember how excited I was when we went to old Cathedral in our history class. It wass much more interesting than reading boring books about the building.
Last but not least is that ancient buildings represent a great attraction for tourists to a particular city. It causes an increase in economic situation of cities. Therefore we would only benefit if we protect main show-places of our communities.
To conclude, I strongly believe that people should direct all their efforts to preserve old buildings because they are witness of the past, our national heritage as well as objects of a great interest for children and tourists.
