Place Vaudémont, Nancy, France, 2011[open in full screen]  

 
  Previous Place Stanislas, Nancy, France

Most of the time when I am planing to visit a city for the first time I do little research in advance. Internet is obviously these days best bet but I like to consult other recourses. I have significant collection of books - historical, architecture, urban issues. I also very much liked tourist guides, especially DK eyewitness travel guides.

  I was prepared to some degree for the previous square, Place Stanislas but nothing prepared me for this one and the next one. Now I know that they are all together under UNESCO protection since 1983 and very rightfully so.

Area is still very active and used with obvious passion and admiration by both locals and visitors.

  We can easily say that Nancy is city of urban squares and it deserves special page with our impression about an area around four squares marked on our map bellow. By selecting a next square make a quick tour true them and then proceed to the whole big picture.

Next Place de la Carriere, Nancy, France
