The theme of the postage stamp with the image of the legendary postman Fedir Feketa from the village of Tur'i Remeta, Perechyn District, Transcarpathia, was chosen for a reason. F. Feketa went to Uzhgorod and back every day for mail, about 60 km. His postal activity began with the opening of a foundry in his native village, which needed constant postal exchange. In those years (the first half of the 19th century), the coach and mail line "Budapest-Kosice-Lviv" passed through Uzhhorod. Fedir Feketa was born in 1789 and died on March 18, 1839. According to the recollections of his fellow villagers, he slipped once while crossing a pond and fell into the cold water: he caught a cold and died of pneumonia. In his honor at the local church in the village. Turya Remeta has a memorial plaque with the inscription: "Fedor Feketa. In Memory of Friendship. Sobriety, Honesty and Service of the Ambassador". A bronze monument (sculptor Mykhailo Belen) was erected in his honor in the district center of Perechyn in 2004. It is located in the central part of Perechyn, and the district post office is nearby, which is a certain symbol.
