Travel Tips for Nancy
Nancy quarters: Ville-Neuve
The "New" Town isn't really so new - it was first founded in 1588 by Duke Charles III. It differs considerably from the "Old" Town by a rather square layout. It is here where you can find the Cathedral, other important churches and quite a few Art Nouveau buildings! Our Art Nouveau circuit walk brought us here and we enjoyed the Jugendstil details a lot!
Le Coeur du Grand Nancy
A discreet statue near the train station, in Place of Republique, calls our attention, with a golden heart atop a pile of iron hearts, clearing reproducing the style of the iron works in Stanislas square.
It invites to read, and doing that I found that it is a work of the artist Jorge Orta, created in 2002, to celebrate a convention of organ donors.
Peacock in the park
There is a small zoo in the park and you may find here peacocks, walking in the park. There are a lot of trees and birds have a possibility to feed them by their selves. I don't know whether it's allowed to feed animals.
Stanislav constructed the Triumphal Arch in honour of the husband of his daughter and the king of France Louis XV (Stanislav's father-in - law).
A copy of Septimus Severus’ Arch in Rome, it glorifies King Louis XV through its ornamentation: bas-reliefs, inscriptions …. It is topped by an acroterium celebrating Louis XV as Victor and Peacemaker and decorated with a medallion of the King.
The arch gives the finished view to the ensemble of the royal square though it is on some distance.
THE LORRAINE MUSEUM & THE FOLKS ARTS MUSEUM....
The Lorraine Museum is located in the old town's most prominent building, formerly known as the "Palais Ducall".
Built during the RENAISSANCE by the Dukes of Lorraine, this palace inspired the most famous artists of Lorraine and hosted some of the world's most celebrated personalities: Henri II, Marie Stuart & Louis XIV, all stayed there!
Transformed into a museum a century ago by the Lorraine Archaeology Society (Soci?t? d'Archeologie Lorraine), de Mus?e Lorraine features several galeries and the Convent and Church of Les Cordeliers (Eglise et Couvent des Cordeliers), dating back to 1487.
The remains of the family of Lorraine are buried in the churche's crypt.
The gatehouse of the Palais de Calle on the Grande Rue is one of the earliest examples of renaissance art in eastern France.
