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

Nancy is one of the most well-known cities in the French region Lorraine. This city features not only places from the UNESCO World Heritage list, but is also well-known as the city of the Art Nouveau. 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.

I think this is one of the most famous places in the city. Place Stanislas is a beautiful square which belongs to the UNESCO World Heritage list. 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.
