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 - Write a Review

  • An absolutely must see in Nancy! The heart of the city. Beautifully lit at night. They have garden displays in the Autumn, currently an urban forest being hugely enjoyed by the locals.

  • We visited Nancy a month ago, August 2017. Such a beautiful city, and Place Stanislas is at the heart of it. Great square surrounded by magnificent buildings, statues and of course eating places... Nice anytime of the day. !

  • This beautiful square really makes Nancy and is definitely a must see. Nice restaurants / cafés around the square. The light show is very impressive (around 10:45pm or 10pm on Sunday, but check times).

  • Best light show ever seen before. Using powerful laser to make a 20-min video which looked like 3D due to its spectacular and large screen size. Must visit this place, especiallt at night (10p.m)

  • Really nice Place from the city which you should check out!It has a lot of restaurants ,bars and coffees for a regular price XD
