If you like grandeur, gold, statues, grottos and fountains, then this is a place you should visit at least once. Lavish, large and pulsating with life, at least when we were there. All the world and his wife walked through or had their... More

This square in the Unesco Heritage listed area in Nancy is the highlight of any trip to Nancy. Words cannot explain how beautiful Place Stanislaus is. Be sure to see in daylight and at night

Definitely worth popping into Nancy to see the square if you are in the area. Very unexpected and a great place to explore for a couple of hours, lots of places to stop and have a drink or something to eat.

Beautiful, magnificent, clean and shiny, this is Stanislas Place. It is really worth to visit. At the time of our visit the biggest attraction here were icebound fountains. Surprisingly (or not?) more appealing to adults then kids. Very nice place and time spent there.
