Titov Vrv (Macedonian: Титов Врв, Albanian: Turk i Madh) is the highest peak in the Šar Mountain at 2,748 m. It is located about 13 mi (21 km) northwest of the Macedonian city of Tetovo near the border with Kosovo. The summit was named after former Yugoslav leader Josip Broz Tito. Its original name was Голем Турчин/Golem Turčin ("Big Turk"). In 1934 the peak was renamed Mount Aleksandar after the name of the Yugoslav King Aleksandar, who was assassinated in the same year. During the World War II the Bulgarian authorities restored its traditional name. After the establishment of Communist Yugoslavia the peak was renamed after Tito. The name has remained unchanged since Macedonian independence in 1991.
