PARTS OF A CITY
Cities have three main parts:
The historic centre. This is usually the oldest part. The streets are narrow and the buildings are not very tall. Historic monuments, such as the cathedral and the main square, are usually in the historic centre.
The modern district. This area often surrounds the city centre. The streets are wider. There are often tall buildings here.
The suburbs. These are residential areas away from the centre. There are shopping centres, factories and industrial estates in many suburbs.
