Bruno says: Right in the center of the town, the Stanislas square in Nancy is considered one of the nicest in Europe. The four corners of the square are closed by golden arches and fountains, which are sometimes used as bathtubs by students leaving the local night-clubs. In the center stands a statue of Stanislas. Stanislaw I Lesczczynski, King of Poland, was ousted by Augustus II during a succession war in 1733 and was subsequently given the duchies of Bar and Lorraine by his son-in-law, Louis XV. While being Duke of Lorraine, Stanislas embellished the town of Nancy and gave it the square which now bears his name. By going through the arch visible on the photograph and turning left, one can reach the ``Parc de la Pépinière'' which includes a zoo, some interesting looking trees and plants and a music kiosk. The park is also used for a number of art or music exhibitions and gatherings during the summer.
