Crime and pickpockets

Prague is generally a safe place to be, but please be very aware at tourist spots and especially in public transport areas, as they are known as favorite pickpocket areas. We don’t want to scare you but just be aware of the fact these people want to make advantage of the fact that you’re taking a good look at the city but maybe not enough as your personal assets.
