In the historical town of Napier you will find the largest collection of Art Deco architecture in the world. After an earthquake in 1930’s the town was almost entirely rebuilt in the Art Deco style that was fashionable at the time. Today the architecture is protected and celebrated at the annual Art Deco weekend, which attracts visitors from all over the world.
