On St. James's Sunday, July 27, 2014, the opening and blessing of the third walking and cycling route of St. James was held in the Church of St. Jakob in Dobrovnik in Prekmurje. St. the mass was led by the bishop of Murskosobo, dr. Peter Štumf, who blessed the new path and together with the mayor of the Municipality of Dobrovnik, Marjan Kardinar, opened the Prekmurska-Stajerska Jacobova path.
