Name[edit]

Locally, Šmaver is known as Štamaver or Šentmaver.[3]

History[edit]

The actual settlement of San Mauro remained in Italy, whereas the area of Šmaver with the eastern slopes of Mount Sabotin, now without any permanent residents, was annexed to the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in 1947.
