Place Stanislas - Review

This is only a square, and yet the reactions it breeds in the hearts of visitors is overwhelming. They say it could be the most beautiful and grandest public squares in the world. It’s not one square – it’s three - Place de la Carrière and Place d'Alliance are extensions to the original square. Stanislaw I came up with it as a way to link Nancy’s Old Town to its newer neighbourhoods. Historically, the place has always been a place for festivities and assemblies. Some of the sights at the square are:

  • The City Hall of Nancy (Hotel de Ville)
  • The Prefecture of Meurthe-et-Moselle at the South-East corner
  • The Opera-Theatre
  • The Grand Hotel
  • The Fine Arts Museum
  • The Pavillon Jacquet
  • The Arc de Triomphe
  • The Statue of Stanislas
  • Ornate fountains at the North-West and North-East corners
  • The gilded gates

There are plenty of places to eat and drink nearby. Find somewhere to settle down and watch the crowds go by. Everything here is utterly gorgeous, even and especially at night, when everything is lit up.

Place Stanislas, Nancy Reviews

  • A very nice spot if Nancy, I would really recommend this place, it is very a beautiful sqaure with terrace where you can drink, good restaurants nearby and a nice spot to come and take a look. In the evening there was a great great liveshow! Really something you have to check if you are there! It's for young, youth and adults a nice thing to watch!

  • The main square of the city is a perfect place to enjoy a drink sitting at a terrasse but don't forget sunglasses on sunny days

  • A must see spot in Nancy. A great place to relax and enjoy a meal on a sunny day in summer or winter.

  • Clean and quiet square. Nice view and beautiful fountain and buildings. Well maintained.

  • It has always been one of my favorite places in Nancy. It is so bright, that you need sunglasses during sunny days. Gives access to the pepini√®re, rue gourmande, museums, other great places of Nancy. And each summer they display sound and light show on the buildings. They even clean the floor with soap every morning so that people can sit while watching the show. Amawing.
