Nancy is situated in the French province of Lorraine, and has an air of refinement found nowhere else in this region. Much of the city centre was built during the 18th century, and the resplendent central square, fine museums, formal gardens and shop windows sparkling with Daum and Baccarat crystals are all still in tact today.
The city is well know for it’s world heritage buildings at the Place Stanislas. At the turn of the 20th century, Nancy was a major centre of the Art Nouveau and the Ecole de Nancy.
The main railway station is Gare de Nancy-Ville, with direct connections to Paris, Metz, Lyon and Strasbourg as well as regional destinations. By road, the A31 connects Nancy with Metz, Luxembourg and Langres.
