Today Napier is considered the Art Deco capital of the world, with its collection of beautiful buildings attracting thousands of visitors every year and even hosting the world’s annual Art Deco Festival. Examples of the unique architectural themes and designs can be found in buildings all around the town centre, it’s easy enough to explore it all by walking around yourself.
