  Nancy - Cathedral
by Kuznetsov_Sergey

Favorite thing: Stanislav died in Nancy in 1766. Some habitants considered that he got drunk of wine from plum (traditional in these territories), stumbled and fallen in a fireplace from which he could not get out. There was only a servant who of the lowest caste, who had not the right to touch the king. While he ran for a help, the king burned down. After his death Lorraine was attached to the French crown.

Only after Stanislav death slow, but true plunder of works of art and furniture from ducal palaces, destruction the Lorain style began. Versailles should not have competitors! Private attempt to give Nancy the status of typically country town began. For some time attempt went right, but today nevertheless it is possible to consider it is not included.
