Nancy is the capital city of the Lorraine region of France, an area traded back and forth between Germany and France many times over the centuries. Thanks to the new high-speed TGV train, it is exactly half way between Paris and Strasbourg, a one and half hour ride by rail. The city itself has a little over 100,000 people, with about 400,000 in the surrounding areas. It was once known as an art center that rivaled Paris, thanks to a strong Art Nouveau movement there. The Musee de L’Ecole de Nancy commemorates this history. (image: a fountain at Place Stanislas)
Nancy is famed for a UNESCO World Heritage site: the Place Stanislas, built by an exiled Polish Duke in the mid 18th century. By night, the Place is beautifully illuminated. It is a wonderful place to stroll after a delicious French meal. In October, Nancy hosts a Jazz Festival, with inexpensive tickets and much street fare. The old town area is lovely for strolling, featuring many Art Nouveau buildings, galleries and wine bars.
