Place Stanislas, a remarkable jewel

Cobblestoned, pedestrian-only Place Stanislas is a perfect place for a stroll. Golden gates and fountains form a link between City Hall, the Grand Hôtel, the Nancy and Lorraine Opera House and the Fine Arts Museum. This architectural jewel was built in the 18th century by Emmanuel Héré at the request of Stanislaw Leszczynski, Duke of Lorraine. Connecting the Old and New Towns, the royal square is listed as a Unesco World Heritage site, together with Carrière and Alliance squares.
