"I live in Madrid..." Security Tip by wqwetq

Security, Madrid: 78 reviews and 23 photos

since I was born (35 years ago). I have never had a security problem in the city. The advice is: don't look like a tourist, try to look like you have been in the city for years. People is very kind and is always willing to give a hand. Most of young people speak english, so, if you feel unsecure, ask any bar tender or any taxy driver to help you. Pickpockets occur in the Gran Via, Puerta del Sol and Plaza Mayor. Be careful in the subway, but this is one of the best subways in the world. There are some security problems in the airport. Keep your things near you in every moment. Enjoy this wonderful city... and dont miss a soccer match at Atletico de Madrid stadium.
