Place Stanislas, Nancy

4.8
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Place Stanislas is surrounded by some of Nancy’s best-known buildings, including city hall and the opera house. Visit this charming square with its grandiose fountains and wrought-iron gates for a sense of France in the 18th century. The square is named after King Stanislas Leszczynski of Poland in honor of his son-in-law Louis XV. At its center is a statue of its namesake created by Georges Jacquot: King Stanislas stands dressed in flowing robes, holding a sword in his left hand and pointing toward the north with his right. Light ochre stones pave the square, with two lines of darker stones forming a diagonal cross motif. Many festivals and assemblies are held here throughout the year.

  • A beautiful square in the center of Nancy. A very French atmosphere with all these matching buildings around the square with its gold-plated gates. Nice terasses all around in summer time. When we visited there was also some life music.
  • Beautiful square that you can’t take in all, keep going back and swing some new detail. The light show is beautifully done and a magical half an hour!
