It is the only administrative region with two cities of equal importance, Metz and Nancy. It comprises the departments of Meurthe-et-Moselle, Meuse, Moselle and Vosges. Metz is considered to be the official capital since that is where the regional parliament is situated. The region's name is derived from the medieval Lotharingia. Lorraine is the only French region to have borders with three other countries: Belgium, Luxembourg, and Germany. It also borders the French regions of Franche-Comte, Alsace, and Champagne-Ardenne. The location of Lorraine led to it being seen as a strategic asset and as the crossroads of four nations, it had a very important role in European affairs. Many rivers run through Lorraine, including the Rhine, Moselle, Meurthe, and Meuse.

Lorraine is a little-known but growing touristic region in France. It is most notable for its architectural beauty and fantastic scenery with some of its towns providing you with the most breathtaking views over the countryside. Lorraine is the birth place of heavy industry, mining and steel works. It is a prominent industrial and agricultural area located where green fields abound with the blue backdrop of theVosges mountains. The streams and rivers of the Vosges mountains provide the minerals and salts that give the springs of Lorraine their famous healing powers. The cold, crystal clear lakes make Lorraine a superb location for fishing and camping holidays! Sailing and other watersports are also hugely popular in the region.
