  Beware on the metro!
by dhina

I read some warning about pickpockets in Prague before, so I think I was quite aware on it. But one day before we left, my friend's wallet was stolen on the metro when we want to go back to our hotel. It's around 6 pm and the metro was crowded (we got in at Museum metro station). All the seats were occupied, so that we have to stood up in front of the door together with a group of man (around 20-35 years old). I felt a bit bad feeling from the start, I warned my friends to watch out the backpack. But it was too late, they really worked so fast, and just trapped us in their group, one of my friend and me could get out of them but the other friend was not. It's happened several seconds before the metro stop for the next station, the group was gone out together from the metro with such a reckless movement and pushed my friend around. When she realized that she could not find her wallet the metro was starting to move already :-(
