Murmansk — Teriberka
Teriberka — Vostochnaya Litsa
Pulosero — Lovosero
Lovosero — Ivanovka
Ponoy — Sosnovka
Umba — Kusomen
Kusomen — Pyalitsa
Ponoy — Kanevka

etc.

All route together amounted almost 1 000 km.

The route Murmansk — Teriberka was a longest in the post net —180 km, a postman works on this route 6 times at month.

Usually the postman completes the route in 2 day, but in case of bad weather postman stood in tundra, waiting for a blizzard finish.
