The northern part of the region is dominated by the valleys of the Meuse, Meurthe and Moselle rivers. Metz is located on the banks of the Moselle, Nancy is in the valey of the Meurthe.
Hattonchatel and Verdun are in the Meuse region. Verdun is mostly famous because some of the most gruesome fighting of the first world war took place in and around the city. The road from Bar-le-Duc to Verdun is known as La Voie Sacree because it was used to bring new soldiers and new weapons to the battlefields in Verdun. It safed France from a total defeat, but many, many soldiers died.
In the south the Vosges offer great outdoor opportunities. Epinal is the most important city in the area.
