Nancy is one of the most elegant and beautiful cities in France. There were kept a lot of fine monuments.
Polish king Stanislav became the original hero of Lorraine. Though many people firstly grumbled against him. You can even see the house with Leopold's bust, last really independent lotharingian duke at whom admirers of freedom often gathered. Today tourists are ready to pay for the right to look at Stanislav's square (especially it is good at night), to go to a local opera ( the beauty of a building quite meets to a level of statements there

In the XIX century Nancy became the native land of such celebrities as Galle, Daum, Majorelle, Prouve, Vallin. These people stand at sources of occurrence Art Nuevo. More than 70 houses in style of Art Nuevo create uniform ensemble in Nancy.

French Nancy is well-known for the architectural ensembles. The UNESCO included the city in the list of the World heritage of mankind. The local Stanislav's square is considered one of the most beautiful in the world, but also there is the set of baroque and rococo palaces and houses, parks and squares. The whole last year there was celebrated the XVIIIth century which became "the gold" for the history of the city.

      Often it is like that for me too! Coming from so far away, I always think either a few hours or a few days in a town or city is better than nothing.!

    Thanks for the great stories about Nancy in Lorraine! I did not know that the Battle of Nancy was such a big event in European history. Also, thanks for visiting my Tallinn page. The Old City in Nancy appears to be a less touristy than the one in Tallinn.

    This is really a very thorough visit of Nancy! Same than Metz, I went often in Nancy but 90% of the time for work and 10% for a rest with a beer n some terrace with a view on Stanislas Place. Not much time for a visit!

    Enjoyed this page on Nancy. We were once in the area of Nancy many years ago, but sadly did not go directly into the city. The parks and architecture are wonderful. Thanks for the history of Nancy.

    Very nice and interesting page. You are lucky being inside of St Epvre. I was in the city when the church was under reconstruction as well as Stanislas Square was under reconstruction works preparing to 250 years anniversary.
