This city is extremely safe, I visited there and it was delightful. Just take normal precautions, you don't need to be paranoid, yet don't be stupid and travel alone at late night, since the crime rates are significantly higher. Stick to the main touristic areas and you'll be all fine, petty theft is common though.
