Gdynia and Tel Aviv are almost 3,000 kilometres away and yet, despite the distance between them, the two cities are strikingly similar. Both were founded in the early 20th century and quickly became modern seaside resorts and ports. Both boast characteristic modernist architecture. It turns out they also share a common Polish-Jewish history. At the Gdynia – Tel-Aviv temporary exhibition visitors will get acquainted with both the similarities between the two cities and the unique features that make each one so special.
