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.

The square is impressive, with elegant buildings and golden gates. You have to wear a mouth/nose mask but there is no prevention to keep enough distance here. There are terraces with the tables very..... more »
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!
