Slavs of Chicago!

Travel blog Gridskipper featured Chicago’s Bulgarian community yesterday with Chicago's Bulgarians at the Gates.

The post includes a Bulgarian tour of the city, including
Cafe Florida (4356 N. Leavitt Street), Sofia In Chicago (9439 Irving Park Road, Schiller Park) and Cafe Mirage (9845 Lawrence Avenue, Schiller Park). Gridskipper also advises a stroll down Adams Street, ground zero for the local Bulgarian community. And there’s also links to two local newspapers, Bulgaria-Weekly and Bulgaria 21.

Even more significant is a link to Bulgarians in Chicago, an article from the
Encyclopedia of Chicago, which unlike the Encyclopedia of New York is online.

Other gems include the entries on Belarusians, Bosnians, Croatians, Czechs and Pilsen, Macedonians, Poles and Polonia, Russians and Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Church, Serbs, Slovaks, Slovenes, Ukrainians (including Carpatho-Rusyns) with Icon of the Annunciation at St. Nicholas Ukrainian Church and Ukrainian Village, and Yugoslavs.
