"Pickpockets: Don't get paranoid!" Pickpockets Tip by Serrano.33

Pickpockets, Prague: 116 reviews and 47 photos

After having read all the warnings about pickpocketing we decided to skip all travel in public transportation and to only carry money in the inside pockets of the trousers and jackets.
There definitely are gangs pickpocketing around Old Town, Charles Bridge etc but as mentioned by another traveller they are easily spottable.
Being vigileant pays off but with all precautions taken you can relax and enjoy the beauty of the city without having to feel threatened and getting paranoid. In my opinion chances off being robbed are higher in other mediterranean cities where the gypsie gangs can be very aggressive.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
