The opposite of a galvanic cell is an electrolytic cell. Galvanic cell is spontaneous which electrolysis is not.

They are the same. The difference comes when comparing them to electrolytic cell. A galvanic cell transforms chemical energy into electrical energy. An electrolytic cell converts electrical energy into chemical energy.
