The Expano pavilion is the perfect place to start your exploration of Pomurje. This insane architectural creation will surely impress you as soon as you enter it.
The so-called “Door to Pomurje” is located in Murska Sobota at the exit from the A5 motorway. Enjoy the amazing experience of time-travel via Panofilm, that is, projections that surround you on all sides in the projection hall and show the territory that interests you.
Put on the virtual reality glasses and enjoy the flight over Pomurje, its castle and the distance from Prlekija to Lendava in Max Cosyns’ high-altitude balloon. Luckily, the adventure does not end here!
Try out Neurospa where you move the thermal water with your mind, and then take a walk in the Magical clearing. There, the holographic images of animals in the forest of Pomurje await.
Expano sure does awaken all your senses and you can have fun there all day long.
In 1934, a real high-altitude balloon landed in Ženavlje, a small village in Goričko, and out of the craft soon emerged the Belgian scientist Max Cosyns. The event, not part of the original plan and the result of bad weather conditions, attracted a lot of attention from the local and foreign public. Later, he would even be featured in literary works from the Prekmurje region (Source: Expano website).
The restaurant is great for tasting local Pomurje delicacies, accompanied by great service. It would be a sin not to try the Prekmurje layered pastry (Prekmurska gibanica) off their menu.

The Expano pavilion is actually right next to the Sobota Lake (Soboško jezero). Its surroundings offer a variety of water and land sports activities, such as picnics, SUP paddling, and swimming, or testing your motor skills on as many as 35 different devices in the exercise park. This trip will keep you busy throughout the whole day!
