Chauny Travel guide
Chauny : Michelin's recommendations
Chauny-les-Vapeurs (smoky Chauny) was the nickname given to this small town by the people in the surrounding area, due to its intense industrial activity. Part of a group of small towns which include Tergnier and La Fère, the World Wars took a heavy toll of Chauny and only a few well-rooted traditions are left to illustrate the town's historic past.
