“This place is full of culture” applies to anywhere there is life. Culture is the human experience. Culture is the experience of the natural world and the animals in it. Culture can be old or new, somber or silly, surrounds us and lives within us at the same time.
“This place is full of culture” is a phrase some people use to say something is ancient, different, or exotic. But they’re not the same thing. It implies that culture is something tangible, rather than the product of our evolution as groups of people around the world.
Culture is not what something is now, it is the story of how it came to be.
