Postman-marathon runner Fedor Feketa


Fyodor Feketa (1791-1838), whose descendants still live in the village Turya Remeta, for more than 30 years, he worked as a postman, covering a daily distance of twenty-five kilometers to Uzhgorod’s by mail, and then back to his native village. As a result, it is fifty kilometers daily – more than a marathon distance. Fyodor did not walk along the path (this took much longer), but along one of the known short paths. One winter, the postman unsuccessfully put his foot on the ice on the Turitsa river, fell under the water, caught a cold and soon died. And countrymen in his honor put a monument-a Board on the wall of the local Church. An inscription is engraved on the Board :” in memory of the friendliness, sobriety, honesty and service of Ambassador Fyodor Feket. He died in 1838.”

In 2003 in the city center Perechin a bronze monument to postman Fyodor Feketa was erected.

They say that fate itself contributed to Fyodorovich’s election to the postman’s profession. Fyodor’s father went to work in Moscow American, and the little son waited every day for the postman with the news of the Pope. So he decided to become a postman himself. Of course, local postmen do not have the moral right to beat the bucket, because in their history they have such a heroic colleague. This is probably why the local post office is considered exemplary.
