List of places named after Josip Broz Tito


List of places named after Josip Broz Tito

During Josip Broz Tito's presidency and in the years following his death in 1980, several places in the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia were named or renamed in honor of him as part of his cult of personality.

Since the end of Yugoslavia, many towns and squares have reverted their names. In 2008, 2000 protestors marched on Zagreb's Josip Broz square, which is the site of the Croatian National Theatre, to demand it be renamed to Theatre Square as it was previously.

Cities

A total of eight towns and cities were named after Tito. Right after World War II, four municipalities whose role in the partisan resistance movement was perceived as significant gained the adjective "Tito's" (locally "Titov/Titova/Titovo"), while the capital of the smallest federal republic of Montenegro was renamed "Titograd". After Tito's death in 1980, four more cities were added, for a total of one in each of the Yugoslav six federal republics and two autonomous provinces. These were:

* Titograd, July 13 1946 - April 2 1992, Podgorica, Montenegro
* Titov Drvar, 1981-1991, Drvar, Bosnia and Herzegovina
* Titova Korenica, December 5 1945 - February 7 1997, Korenica, Croatia
* Titova Mitrovica (Albanian "Mitrovica e Titos") 1981-1992, Kosovska Mitrovica, Kosovo
* Titovo Užice, 1946-1992, Užice, central Serbia
* Titovo Velenje, 1981-1990, Velenje, Slovenia
* Titov Veles, 1946-1992, Veles, Macedonia
* Titov Vrbas, 1983-1992, Vrbas, Vojvodina, Province of Serbia

With the end of the Communist Yugoslav regime in the early 1990s and the dissolution of the country, each city was renamed.
