The success of the exhibition encouraged to town father of the spa town to repeat this cultural experiment in the following years. Thus, in 2006 this exhibition of the phantastic artists attracted 13 first-class artists from all over Europe. As the attendance of the event in 2007 reached 6,000 art lovers, the future of the art salon SAFE was assured.
