Amazing square in the city centre. Beautiful architecture, fountains and statues. Full of life. Restaurants fairly priced despite being slap bag in tourist zone. Light show at 10:45pm every day.

“Gig Square, Beautiful Gates of Art Nouveau”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

The Place Stanislasis registered in the world heritage, and its scale was approx.100m x 100m. On all corners of the square, Art-Nouveau golden gates were there, but the one on the north-west was the most beautiful for me. Near the gate on the south-west, there is the macaron shop named ‘Mainson des Soeurs Macarois’, one of which was actually the origin of selling macaron in France, even their macarons do not include creams inside. My wife purchased some boxes of macaron in this shop, and the tastes were actually nice.
After visiting Place Stanislasis, visiting macaron shops were highly recommended.

“One of the most beautiful squares in Europe”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

very elegant architecture makes a beautiful beackground for an extremely relaxed and friendly atmosphere on summer days and nights, when tourists and locals mix to watch the "son et lumiere" display after nightfall.

“Amazing light show in the evening but not until 22.45 Hrs!!”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

We were here in Nancy during August to visit some friends of my wife. We discovered that a light show that takes place every night until the end of August. So on a Monday evening we took a seat in one of the squares cafe's ordered some drinks and waited ... and waited. The light show does not commence until 22.45 Hrs so bot great if you have young children. But I can recommend the wait it was an amazing light show projected onto the squares building (mainly the town hall). Great visual effects and really breath taking graphics plus the best bit is its free!
