    stimulation

    Our city planners and architects have converted the organic pattern of the village into a geometrically perfect grid. Our natural habitat has been transformed into an expanse of hard straight surfaces, with stone and metal and concrete and glass. Of course, the city is still a wonderful place for stimulation, for opportunity, and for cultural interaction.

    (Hi! What does "stimulation" mean in this context? I mean, why is the city a wonderful place for stimulation ? Thanks for your help. )

    In fact, you could say the city is our most spectacular creation. And, believe it or not, it still has elements of the rural past.

    It means the place elicits special thoughts in you. Venice is a wonderful place for stumulation because it provides a poet with ideas for his poem.
