Another area that has a lot of Bohemians is North Dakota, especially the southwest corner. My family coming from Bohemia in 1906 still farms there.

I mean outside of NYC, L.A., Miami, and Chicago, of course. I'm thinking from countries like Slovenia, Romania, Poland, Russia, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, the Ukraine, Czech Republic, etc.

These countries are the ones I would most like to travel to someday, and I really enjoy reading about their history, geography, and culture. Also I need to choose a language to take in school and I've been thinking about Russian. But I was wondering about the practicality of it. In case I never did travel is there anywhere in the U.S. where I might get a chance to use it? I mean the obvious choice would be Spanish but my interest would be Russian or a similiar language. Then again with all the changes over there how far would russian get me if I did travel. Does anyone know what language(s) are the most useful to know while traveling in central and eastern Europe? I'm just trying to learn some more about languages, so any help with info is appreciated.
As for Croats the oldest communities are, as far as I know, gold diggers in California, than maritime industry (oysters in Louisiana, fishing in San Pedro), and miners in Ohio, Pennsylvania. Coastal Croats (Dalmatians) tend to go to southern parts, while continental Croats immigrated to colder places. I think 95% of Croatian Americans immigrated late 19/early 20 century.

I believe Pittsburgh, Pa. is the city with the highest nr of our people in the USA.

Donít worry about the travel over here Ė English will be just enough. In fact, Russian could be useless since a lot of Central/Eastern European people, due to the recent history, refuse to speak it.
