Is Prague Safe?
When you have everything Prague has to offer plus you have direct access to pretty much the whole of central Europe at your fingertips.
The question is, though, is whether Prague is safe for tourism?
After traveling to the capital we’re here to give you the scoop on whether Czechia is not only safe but worth the visit for you. Let’s get stuck in!
How Safe is Prague?
Prague is very safe for tourism. On the one hand, it’s just like any other European city with petty crime problems and the highest chances of crime happening to visitors being pickpocketing.
This is mostly due to the fact that there is a lot of underground crime such as drugs and trafficking, along with the long adjustments from Socialism to Capitalism.
In our opinion, Prague is a safe city to visit! We say this mainly because of just how many tourists visit here each year without negative experiences.
You’d be surprised how many people come here to revel in all the astronomical goodness. According to Travel Safe Abroad,
“The most frequent scam is about money exchange on the street, where you might be given a better rate, but you will be fooled since the money you will get would be old Czech Crowns which are no longer acceptable.”
They tend to stand outside exchange bureaus, looking to make deals with strangers. Now you know this particular scam you can easily avoid it.
