Nancy is a beautiful city nestled in the northeast region of France, near the border of Luxembourg and Germany. It is the capital of Lorraine and was once the home of Stanislas Leszczynski, King of Poland and Duke of Lorraine. Composed by four distinct yet harmonious districts - Saint-Georges, Essey, Maxeville and Nancy-Centre - Nancy offers many opportunities to visit historical places like Place Stanislas (UNESCO World Heritage Site), its majestic baroque opera house or its well preserved fortified ramparts.

One can also explore some wonderful green spaces like Parc de la Pepiniere, Parc Sainte-Marie or Jardin Botanique du Montet while enjoying traditional cuisine with a modern twist or strolling along the banks of Meurthe River. For an unforgettable experience visitors should definitely attend one performance at Opera national de Lorraine which offers both operas and ballets as well as other cultural events throughout the year.
