People can take photos using trick-art and optical illusion ndash they can float in the air, crawl out of a crack in the ground, hide in a mouse hole from a cat or sit under the water.It is not about reality but a clever combination of colour, mirrors, angles, shadow perspective and the right position of the photographer.

The idea to create the gallery arose more than a year ago, according to its co-owner Lucia Vankovaacute, My Liptov reported."We wanted to create something untraditional, funny and educative for all age categories and accessible in all weather conditions," explained Vankovaacute, as quoted by My Liptov.

The gallery has rooms full of optical illusions spread over more than 400 square metres. Visitors can see 20 attractions by way of trick-art, optical illusions and mirror rooms.

Many attractions are designed to change over one day."We have only been open for a short time but I have to say that people leave our gallery satisfied and smiling," said Vankovaacute, also mentioning the positive Facebook reviews, as cited by My Liptov.

A visit to the gallery lasts between 45 minutes and one hour. The total capacity of the gallery only allows for 12 people at a time but it is possible to book in advance online.
