In the High Tatras, Starý Smokovec's Tricklandia gallery is known for its exhibitions based on trick-art and optical illusions. The individual pieces are inspired by Slovak folk tales and fairy-tales, but they also present facts about Slovakia's villages and castles.

This season, the gallery has a novelty that also links modern technology with folk culture, sparking an interest in Slovak folklore among the younger generation.
The gallery's Mystery Exhibition is composed of a painting that changes right in front of visitors, depending on the light that shines on the piece of art. The magic lies in double exposition: The same painting looks different under red and blue light.
