The celebration of the patron saint of the city

Јединствени обичај у свету – слава! Град Лесковац такође има своју – Градску славу. То је Света Тројица, тачније Духовски понедељак – заштитник града.

Света Тројица се слави педесети дан од Ускрса. Тада су се годинама одржавале градске литије, да би после Другого светског рата биле укинуте. Од 1992. године Литије поново крећу кроз град, заустављају се у централном градском парку, испред споменика Незнаном јунаку, да би се молитва читала испред записа који се налази на дрвету преко пута споменика.

Ова манифестација је свакако садржај занимљив за све посетиоце из различитих култура и религија, а гостољубивост домаћина на слави је незаборвна за сваког госта.
