I want to do such splits like these pictures...
Would it be easy to do it at home?
Or should I go to gymnastics club?
Would they accept a girl in her twenties?
PS: I never tried it before and never tried any other sport but my body is already in a good shape.

I want to encourage you to try it! It is possible, I achieved it and here is my story:
I got a first taste of gymnastics when I was 6 or 7... I went to 3 or 4 practices and even though I was good and made some friends, I was always too playful, I didn't take it seriously, and teacher complained about it to my mom so I had to stop. It didn't effect me at all... :/
Then when I was 14 I started watching American All star Cheerleading, which is strange considering I'm from Balkan, Eastern Europe, but I was so inspired by it. I also somehow discovered dance moms videos on youtube and popular dances such as "Dance precisions Run the world".
Discovering Victoria's secret fashion shows a few months before inspired me to start working out, and I really enjoyed working out, so these dance and cheer videos inspired me to incorporate some gymnastics in here too. I know I will never be a "flyer" or a "tumbler" or a competitive dancer, but I knew I could do some of these poses if I try and stay consistent. So I did it in my room, sometimes I didn't even stretch or workout before jumping on my bed and doing splits. "Splits". My inner thighs were totally not touching the bed, but I did it and counted to one minute, and then I went on with my day, and I did this aroung 2-7 times a day definitely. Some days I did none if I was busy. In 2 to 3 month I was able to splits, "scorpion" pose but not as professionally and straight as online pictures, the pose in your second picture of a little girl in red, but I had to hold my foot there, I couldn't just kick the air and hold my leg in place there, I needed to support it with my hand... If you find fun in it and if you are determined you will achieve this in a few months. You will feel very proud and special. In high school (By the time I was 15 I could do all this and make it look somewhat effortless and professional) I was like that special flexible girl, there is always one or two of those in P. E classes but in hs I was the only one! It made me feel great about myself, and I encouraged my friends to try, because I'm far from a professionally trained gymnast, but they didn't have the passion and patience for it... Since you do, I encourage you to try it once again! No matter that you are 20, I was 14 but I had the same doubt "Is it late, pointless to start now?" and it wasn't late :D
Wow amazing story, thanks a lot wait can I do splits by myself without joining any training club? or is it a big risk to do that?
I try sometimes and I feel like I can't reach the floor I don't know why! Is it safe to try it by myself? I want to push myself to do it but I'm scared that something happens when I do so
Plus can I pm you about these things to take advice when I try it by myself?
Yes, there is no risk. It's normal that your thighs can't touch the floor/bed yet. It's that awkward stage that lasts about a month (if you push yourself everyday for like 1 minute once or twice a day) where you have to hold yourself up on your hands while doing splits because it hurts. Your inner thigh muscles are still not used to being stretched in this way. You will get thought that and then in the 2nd month, you will have your inner thighs almost completely on the floor/bed but your you know crotch won't touch it until 3rd month. In 3rd month you will have the complete split without having to support yourself with hands.
Give or take a few weeks, since everybody's body is different. That is how it was for me. You don't have to join a training club. Try to see it this way- Squats seem like an exercise everyone can do, but begginers can only do 10 or 20, only after about 2 to 3 months will they be able to do 50-100. And you don't need a gym or professional trainer to accomplish it, just strong will! Body needs to slowly adjust to new positions/movements and you can adjust it by yourself in a comfort of your home! If you don't do it on a bed spread a thick blanket on a ground, it's important to be comfortable, and not hurt yourself
