About Nancy

Place Stanislas

Nancy is known around the world for its 18th-century squares inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. Surrounded by magnificent buildings, fountains and gilded gates, Place Stanislas is one of the most beautiful royal squares in Europe.

Porte de la Craffe

The city also boasts a remarkable Renaissance town which has changed little over the centuries. Paved streets, small shops and cafés make it a delightful area to stroll.

Art Nouveau artwork

At the turn of the 20th century, the School of Nancy became a vibrant center of Art Nouveau whose art and architecture rivaled Paris and other European capitals. Many Art Nouveau buildings and a unique Art Nouveau museum can still be seen today.


On the gastronomy side, the city is renowned for its original macaron recipe invented in 1792, as well as for its bergamote sweets and its mirabelle plums.
