The Italian researcher Giorgio Comai has created a map of streets and squares across the former Yugoslavia bearing Tito’s name.
The map shows the most (176) places are in Serbia, with Macedonia (36) and Croatia (38/35) coming a distant second and third. As of its September 4, 2017 publication date, the map still showed streets in Karlovac, Šibenik, and Zagreb local authorities had renamed in the previous 3 years.
Particular concentrations of Tito street names include Vojvodina (many nationalities present) and Istria (Tito reunited the peninsula with Croatia).
Conversely, Tito street names are mostly gone from Dalmatia (1990s conflict), Kosovo (suppression during socialism), and Republika Srpska (virulent nationalism). Scattered instances exist in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Macedonia.
