Very safe city Even Praga is mostly safe today Love Warsaw Everyone should visit in my opinion
Edwar Makhoul on May 22, 2020:
I would like to say that Warsaw is usually SAFE but avoid dark places and avoid walking alone at Night

Avoid Praga District; avoid homeless people; avoid Drunk and Narcotic People

Better to avoid Night Buses and Night Metro as Violence could happen and attacks

Mugging happens in Warsaw during the Night at the Bus Stations in Centrum 01 near Marszalkowska and Nowogrodska streets

Usually better to avoid criminals in Warsaw when they ask you for money, Cigarettes and other stuff

Avoid Football Stadiums and the Hooligans

Avoid Night Clubs and go home in a Group at Night and call Uber and Taxi

a lot of weird comments here. I grew up in Berlin, lived in Warsaw for close to 20 years and currently stay in London, traveling every month back to the Polish capital. The city is one of the safest capital cities in Europe. Period. Look at crime reports and compare what is happening right now in the West. The worst that can happen to you in Warsaw is you get punched in the face and robbed - IF you walk in the middle of the night, alone through some dodgy streets. In London or Paris you can get killed at daylight in the city center. Yes, Polish tend to be less tolerant towards LGBT, Muslims and also quite rude (for British standards) but thats simply cultural differences explained in some comments below.

probably the safest city in Europe by now
reading some comments below about how unsafe Warsaw is make me laugh
I live here since 21 years and never had any kind of dangerous situation
but yes Poles are homophobes and don't like foreigners that come to make trouble
anyway in Warsaw I feel safe anywhere anytime

It's indeed not a very safe city if you're LGBT, just as the rest of Poland. This country is very homophobic. I don't like it, so I'll never visit it. Conservative countries like this one are the worst in this world.

im a small 19 year old guy and i can walk around warsaw at night alone i do it everynight i go through the "roughest" areas and never had any problems.. as long if you dont stare at people you wont have problems just mind your own buisness ;)

Wow, I'm really surprised by some negative reviews below. I wonder if that's black PR? I travelled whole Europe, and generally i feel Poland much safer than some other big cities like for example Berlin. In Berlin you can see many drug addicts and syringes laying around in the parks, you won't find that in Poland. Of course some petty theft can happen anywhere but in general eastern Europe is very civilized, and people are helpful. If you feel in danger - just shout, i guarantee some big muscles Polish guys will run to help you and kick asses of anyone bothering you :)

Yes, it is not that safe in Warsaw. Some of my colleagues have been mugged in city centre, I also heard about more serious assaults. In Warsaw there are many problematic neighborhoods to where better not to go even during daylight. Men insult women in summer dresses, behave unrespectfully.
Moreover in Warsaw they do not like foreigners, I mean at all, even tourists and even in tourist sites. They will try to trick you in the restaurants, will be rude to you. A foreign girl was raped at a metal concert by a polish group.

Me and my friend got robbed in broad daylight by a gang in the center of the city of Warsaw! It's not as safe as people say. Wont come back.

Re: Awesome!
Can you read OK? -I don't think so! Please learn...
2 weeks??? -It's nothing! No holidays, try to LIVE in Warsaw (or rest of Poland) for a while!
Of course, if you come from the West with money earned overthere, the life is cheap. But this is FINANCIAL discussion. With this you should go to "Cost of Living" section.
Here, we talk about crime rate, general safety and corruption.
And this has always been, IS and will be a big problem in Poland, let alone Warsaw!
Kind of "westernized" part of Russia, with EU -camouflage, but with mafias and thieves almost everywhere!
