But be careful in the metro there are many thieves
But in Madrid I had my wallet stolen by three moroquian teenagers in the downtown.
At the police station we had to qeue up 2 hours since it was plenty of tourists reporting thefts.
I cannot recommend Madrid.
Gangs of "macheteros" have taken over the city, so go to there at your own risk.
attacks agains elderly people and women by moroccan youngsters... The government does not do anything and they victimize the collective. The people who complain are called racists. It's a popular word to use nowadays...
The society gives them rights but nor responsibilities. They give them money and assistance while they have a multiple crime history behind. It's like free pass for everything, since they are ''vulnerable colectives''. How about the elderly and women? We are being eaten by this rats.
Local people trying to work and be good citizens, but they cannot even afford rent nowadays. And the government encouraging the importation of problematic people that have little future in our society because their mindset is so rotten.
Nothing makes sense anymore...
Criminals are not being punished enough, and locals get fines by breaking some stupid rules such as laying on the sand or opening a bar terrace during covid.
However, pickpocketing is an issue (as it is in every major city nowadays), and certain hate crimes (especially against the LGBTQ community) are on the rise.
Madrid is also has the LOWEST MURDER RATE OF ANY EUROPEAN CITY OTHER THAN LISBOA.
- Madrid holds the largest drug market of Europe, which leads to very high violent crime rates.
- Madrid is the Spanish leading city in randon citizens being kidnapped take It very seriously.
- Leading city in street shootings and people stabbed in the street.
- It s the city with more "no go" áreas such as Usera, Casa de Campo, Batan, La Latina, Vallecas, Lavapiés, Ciudad Lineal. As you can ser An awful lotm
- There are street shootings by South América and African gangs, which doesn t happen in any other Spanish city.
To sum up Madrid is where you have more chances of getting injured.
Go there at your own risk and venture.
so unsafe city, the downtown is taken over by africans, my friend had to give over all his belonguins.
I can´t recommend.
Madrid is one of the safest cities not just in Spain, but in Europe. In a day and age where cities like Paris, London, Berlin, and Brussels are seeing their image deteriorate because of crime, pickpocketing, and decay, Madrid manages to remain a place where one does
Is it a perfect city? Absolutely not. Are there areas where you need to be careful? Absolutely. But compared to other major cities, I am always in awe at how Madrid manages to remain safe and welcoming. Maybe there are benefits in nàot being a tourist-magnet and over glorified euro-las vegas.
Now, a special message to Aart Geldof: I noticed that you accused people from madrid of being jealous (had to correct you there) and that there were more "western expats" in Barcelona. My response: And? Madrid also has a large "European expat community", but it's much more than that: it's a multicultural city with immigrants from places as diverse as China, Latin America, Morocco, Turkey, Romania, Portugal etc. Barcelona is a great city, but in terms of ethnic diversity Madrid is a true melting pot.
My wife was pushed to
the ground and has her wallet and passport stolen
I can t recommend
Gangs of so called "macheteros" coming grom South America and Morocco have taken over a sizeable share of areas of the city, a friend of us was stabbed in the very down town so WATCH OUT!
mind their own business. There ARE pickpockets that are pros, so in crowds you just need to keep track of your stuff. But to highlight the difference between the violent U.S.
and Madrid/Spain, we were in a little hamburger joint the other day and a homeless drug addict walked in, looked behind the counter, opened the kitchen door and grabbed the box of money. The woman in the kitchen saw him, told him forcefully, to put it back, while waiving her finger at him. He stopped, turned around and brought it back to her. Another example, we were on the train the other day and three 20 yr olds with tattoos,very rough looking, were standing at the door waiting for the train to stop to get off and when we stood up and came near the door, they immediately stepped back to let the “mayores” (old people) have priority (I’m early 50s, hubby 60 but young and in good shape, we aren’t disabled or anything). My husband said “no, no, it’s ok” in Spanish and they smiled and said no no you go. At which point I joked about the fact we must be mayores! The young guys broke out warm grins from ear to ear. There is a kindness and value placed on human health, safety and respect that is not equaled in the gun infused United States that has lousy to no healthcare for so many. I’m daily amazed at how hard life is in the US compared to here. We have not been in the areas here that might be a bit more seedy, but even those areas, no guns.
In our way back home, other travellers in the plane told us they were mugged.
Avoid Madrid at any cost.
I had my laptop stolen, police station are overcrowded, I gave up after 1 hour waiting and queing up.
Went in a tour, Barcelona, Valencia, Sevilla and Madrid. Only in Madrid I was molested by an aggressive group of Argelians and a friend of mine was mugged and seriously injured.
I am afraid I can't recommend.
We stayed there 1 week spring 2019 and 7 chaps were stabbed in the street in 1 single day !
Neighbourhoods such as Malasana, Lavapie or Chueca were taken over by pickpockets and violent junkies, recently were extremely violent riots of Somalians some times fighting the police, some other fighting groups or Argelians with several seriously injured.
We could not get around alone at night since there are dangerous gangs of Moroquians chasing tourists, we won't be back.
Even the airport is unsafe, people has been stabbed there, smth I have never seen in any other European city !
Plenty of aggressive Nigerians selling fake gods in the downtown, they even dare to challenge the police, even in high street, as if we were in Lagos.
Going outdoors at night might be so dangerous.
Definitely a quite dangerous, city specially at night.
Try to bribe a cop in Spain and you get directly to jail. They are well paid, from my personal experience in Western europe, only Italian police is slightly corrupt.
