I read a lot of nonsense in the comments here, omg.

Lived in Prague for years, and it's a pretty safe place compared to most other countries.

People that are saying its not safe probably talking about different Prague. The worst thing you can encounter here as a tourist is pickpocketing (as in every big city), being asked for change or cigs by homeless (as in every big city) and the worst may be fights, im Czech and i only got beaten up once and that was because my own stupidity, i have seen more fights but those were always provoked. Minimal chance somebody will just have a go at you for no reason, and again, this can happen anywhere. I live here 14 years and i was always hanging out around the so called " dangerous " places, i have never feel threathened at all nor my friends.

Been in Prague on a business trip. Snorted some speed with two Ukrainians in a nightclub, then bought some coke and weed from black guys on the street. My colleague also banged a couple of hookers, was very positive experience, as he described it. Overall, very friendly and open city, have been walking with my colleague during the night (and we are just a couple of IT dorks) abd have never felt in danger. So, if you want to 420 and chill, go here!

Is not safe at all.
I have seen lot a blood and fights in the Prague, even Police can be very brutal.
Especially metro(subway) and city center is bad.
Avoid fighting in metro if possible, because you can end up on rails crushed by train.

@Jsuit: Maybe next time lay off the alcohol and use your brain for a change.

@thunder: Nice fairy tail story. NOT! How about you TRY and live in Detroit and see if its anywhere safer than Prague, I dare you.

@Dan: And San Francisco is anywhere cleaner? Something tells me you've either never visited Prague or interacted with the wrong people, which in this case, is your own fault. Plus, Prague is cleaner, San Francisco is not. Unlike Prague, San Francisco has WAY too many filth-ridden people who are also homeless. And SF cops arrested them instead of helping them. The American Dream is a total farce, just like your comment.

@tourist: Sucks for you if you didn't use common sense. I'll take Prague over New York City any day.

Prague is not more dangerous than any other cities in Europe, that for sure. If you avoid typical dangerous places at night, then it is way safer than typical EU cities. Yes pickpocketers are on tour, drunks are typically british coming to the city for a cheap drink and weed, so if you avoid stag parties, you can be safe. Police is doing their police work and don’t mind being harsh, snowflakes be aware.
So, if you are sensitive, easily offended, stay in your house, if you are a normal person, you can travel safely as you would do with a grain of salt everywhere in the civilized world.

Pickpocketing is the biggest problem,mostly by people with "southern" look,ussualy works in gangs,always watch your belongings,bags in crowded areas,metro,malls,tram etc.
Otherwise very safe city.

Never leave your things unattended. I regret doing so, but I left my handbag unattended at the buffet in HH to get my plate for breakfast. When I came back, the bag was gone.
tourist. on Dec 25, 2019:
honestly not safe, i have been warned by my relative that there are a lot of pickpockets in prague, and ALWAYS bring up your bags. don’t leave them in your car. although the shopping bags were covered in my car, the back of my car was smashed and broken into. was robbed of about 12k+ worth of things. ATROCIOUS. the audacity the people have here.

Lived in Prague for 22 years and never had a problem. Not saying it is perfect, but certainly I would feel safe walking around at night alone, as I have done many times.
