In 1992 I had my belongings stolen on a train to krakow. The only part of krakow I set eyes upon was the police station. Then off to Warsaw to get an exit visa. I've never returned but am thinking of doing so this year.

Personally I have never experienced or whitnessed any crime in Krakow. As a woman I feel very safe here.

In 36 years of living here, I got punched once in the middle of the night being alone in not that great of a neighborhood and mugged once as a kid, people are to busy around here to look for trouble, the worst that can happen to you is a loud neighbor (sadly a common occurrence in all of Poland)

Moved here 10 years ago, never had any problems with thefts or pickpocketing. Beautiful city. Not to say that it can't happen of course... but compared to a few other cities i've been to for less than a week and seen or experienced it, then here it's not an issue.

Careful they go through your bags in Poland ... poor country. Change locks often from lock smith who does not know where you life and use wire or other locks to secure all points of entry
