An Interview with Roko Živković – Owner of Museum of Illusions
ZIYP: Dear Roko, can you briefly tell our readers what to expect when visiting the Museum of Illusions in Zadar?
Roko: When visiting the Museum of Illusions in Zadar you will experience a social and fun trip into a world that enchants all generations! It is a perfect place for new experiences and enjoyment with your friends or family, the biggest in this part of Europe. And despite children enjoying it the most, it is also a place for parents, couples, grandmas and grandpas!
ZIYP: How much time does one approximately need to go through the entire museum and have fun whilst doing it?
Roko: It takes one hour to see the entire Museum of Illusions, but since we also have dilemma games and a didactic program scattered around the museum in several places, those who are interested in our brain teasers and jigsaw puzzles will often stay longer.
ZIYP: What is your favourite exhibit?
Roko: If I have to choose one, it would perhaps be the Vortex tunnel because of the whirlwind illusion that it creates. The Vortex will completely overpower you and make you struggle really hard to walk through the rotating cylinder in an effort to make the next step – on a completely flat and stable surface!
ZIYP: What are the best locations for photography in the museum?
Roko: The entire Museum is extremely ‘photogenic’ and our visitors are very creative in taking photographs. Still, I would single out the Ames or Infinity Room, but it is also interesting to try the various options available for the Upside Down Room. Make sure to capture one photo for memory in the Vortex tunnel and the Chair of Illusion. It only takes a bit of imagination to take superb photos and establish great memories!
