France, Nancy Guide (B): A Quick Guide to Nancy

Nancy came up in the 11th Century and is the capital of the French department Meurthe-et-Moselle. The city is located at the river the Meurthe.

The square is named as the most beautiful royal square in Europe and high point of Nancy’s outstanding collection of 18th century monuments. Especially the ‘golden’ gates are very beautiful.
