Hello,

I currenty live in Brooklyn, NY. Just graduated from law school in Cleveland, OH. Originally from Southern part of Russia. Would like to move to an area that is warmer than Cleveland and slower than NY.

Having had few Russian-speaking friends while in school, I realized that it is hard not to speak your tongue for extended periods of time, although I have no problem communicating in English and I have very good American friends.

Thus, if anyone knows of whether there are Russian-speaking people in Charleston, in which area they typicay live and how big is the Russian community there... please reply to my post. I would appreciate it.

I don't know about Charleston, but I know/have known of a number of Russians that live in Columbia so I'm sure there is a small russian population in Charleston, too.

I've met a number of people from russian countries who currently live in Charleston. There's not a set "area" or district where they've moved to though. Charleston has a great and diverse population. Anyone should feel at home here.

The Census Bureau estimated about 2,600 people claiming Russian heritage in Charleston Co. in '06, however, it didn't indicate how many are actually Russian speakers.

Mt. Pleasant has a generous supply of Russian ex-pats. This city is across the Ashley River from Charleston. It is more urban and more urbane than the pot-holed city of Charleston. A marvelous bridge connects the two cities. Dos bedoni!

Hello Lavanda. I know there are quite a few Russians in my hometown of Greenville, SC, located in the Upstate, so there is likely a community of Russians in the Charleston Lowcountry as well. If you would like to meet a few of them, this would be a good place to start (http://russian.meetup.com/289/ - broken link).

With all the Russians posting here, can anyone give info on the above question? Doesn't have to be a restaurant, could be a Eastern European Deli where I can find "home made" pirogies in the cooler or frozen section.

Thanks!
