Metz is a city in the Grand Est region of northeastern France. Located on the Moselle River, it has been an important trading center since Roman times and is one of the country's major cultural centers. The main attractions in Metz include its Gothic-style Cathedral of St. Stephen, its three renowned basilicas, and the Centre Pompidou-Metz - a modern art museum with a collection including works by Chagall and Picasso.
