A relatively new port city compared to its better known neighbour on the Baltic, Gdynia has a lot to offer to its visitors. It is a wonderful example of a 20th century city with its construction covering the Art Deco period of the 20s and 30s, the Socialist era of post-war Europe and the modern designs of the post-communist Poland. Today the city is host to two of the most renowned festivals in the Tri-city area and Poland, the Traffic Design Festival and the Gdynia Design Days, proof of the growing attention and hype the town has gathered in the last few years. As a result Gdynia’s blocks of flats have become urban canvases for amazing murals and street art.
