Geocache Description:


The village of Ženavlje became known for the celebrated landing of a stratospheric balloon, where renowned Belgian scientists Max Cosyns and Nere van Elst landed on 18 August 1934. In memory of that event the municipality erected a monument, the work of sculptor Mirko Bratuša, and August 18th was chosen as the municipal holiday.

Sredi idilicne pokrajine na Gorickem je v naselju Ženavlje postavljen spomenik pristanku prvega stratosferskega balona. Zgodilo se je 18. avgusta 1934. Tega dne sta namrec Max Cosyns in Nere van der Elst poletela iz Belgije z balonom. Namen njunega poleta je bilo proucevanje razlicnih meteoroloških pojavov v višinah do 16.000 metrov. Veter ju je preko Avstrije zanesel v Slovenijo in zvecer sta zasilno pristala v Ženavljah. Že sam pristanek je vzbudil veliko zanimanje, domacini so pomagali pri pristajanju in pospravljanju balona. Balonarja sta škodo, ki je nastala pri pristanku, takoj placala. Še vecje zanimanje pa je pristanek balona povzrocil naslednji dan, v nedeljo. Po porocilih kronistov se je takrat na tem prostoru zbralo okoli pet do šest tisoc radovednih ljudi, med njimi številni ugledni Prekmurci in seveda tudi politiki, manjkali niso tudi številni tujci. Pospravljanje in transport balona sta z manjšimi zapleti trajala še dva dni. Oprema v je dveh vagonih odpotovala preko Ljubljane in Jesenic v Bruselj. Med domacini je dogodek ostal v spominu še desetletja. Z nastankom obcine Gornji Petrovci so leta 1997 postavili spomenik, ki je delo akademskega kiparja Mirka Bratuše.
