Private and public buildings

Your house or flat is a private building because It´s for you and your family.
A public building is for everybody to go in. For example: A library, a museum or a school
are Public buildings.
There are lots of people living and working in the city. Cities are big and noisy, they are full of tall buildings and there is a lot of traffic. Villages are small and quiet.
