Nancy, Tourist information

The Nancy Tourist Office contains information about the city of Nancy.

The main attractions of Nancy are art and architecture. Eighteenth century saw the development of Nancy as one of the prime cultural places in France, while Stanislas Leszcynski, polish king who lost his throne, and father-in-law of Louis XV, came to Nancy as the last of the independent dukes of Lorraine. He ordered one of the most successful urban renewals of the period in all France, and Nancy owes him the beautiful Place Stanislas, brightly renovated in 2005.
