Who was Saint Julia?

Iulia lived in the 5th century, she was subjected to severe suffering for her Christian faith. The torturers cut off the girl's breasts and threw them on a rock. But at the same moment, two water sources began to break through at the place of their fall.

The executioners were enraged by this and crucified Iulia on a cross. Legend has it that at the moment of the crucifixion, a dove flew out of her lips, symbolizing innocence and holiness.

On July 29, another Christian martyr, Aphinogenes, was remembered. That is why the people nicknamed the date Afinogen Zahynki, due to the fact that the period of active Kosovy was coming.

The people even came up with a proverb on this account: “Birds don't sing anymore because they are waiting for autumn”.
