Nancy is famous for its Art Nouveau buildings and its three main squares linking the old and new towns.
The regions capital city, Metz, was annexed by Germany in 1870 and not regained by France until 1918. Between 1905 and 1908, under orders from Kaiser Wilhelm II a huge railway station
was built to facilitate the movement of troops and horses in event of war. A number of other imposing buildings were constructed in the intervening 48 years of German rule.
There are magnificent cathedrals at both Nancy and Metz .
