It is completely safe unless you go for obvious scams like "they promise you a dance" mentioned below or unless you like to pick up a fight drunk in night. I saw couple of bar fights but nobody ever threatened me and I've never had a problem. It was always between some drunks that wanted to fight.

So the worst case scenario can be, if you are a troublemaker, drunk fight late in night. Even if that happens, fists would be the worst thing you would be facing. No knifes and no guns.

To say Wroclaw is a safer city that an American city is to look at it a face value. I've lived in an american city for many years and have not seen in those years as much violence on the streets than in one year in this city.

I have seen racial violence, I have seen pole-on-pole violence, I have seen a general disregard for each other, especially at night in the Rynek. Bouncers are out of control and are not trained to disesclate situations but to violent react to everything. Teenager Women push there way throw people without any manners. Men pick fights for no reason or for racial reasons. I saw a man with a child in his hands start a fight with a guy, and almost fist fight each other. I saw people get jumped because of being a different color, I saw bouncers choke hold people for no reason. People have nothing to lose and they act like it. Apparently its gotten alot worse from the posts I see here from 2015.

Anyone commenting that gun control laws somehow solve the problem of violence, this clearly does not apply in Wroclaw. Moreover these people have clearly not lived in many American cities. I feel 100% safer walking the streets in America then cruising around the Rynek at night, where everywhere I turn someone is picking a fight or being disrepectufl. I am not a gun fan, but apparently mutual deterrence does work, if people knew that picking fights in Wroclaw might get them shot, maybe they wouldn't pick so many fights.

So disappointed in my own people, the respect, appreciation, and humbleness, built along with the heartache of going throw World-Wars, has been lost with this new generation.

These people are ruthless they promise you a dance with a girl then bait and switch you no one thing that comes out of their mouth is true when the get you CC the will rack it up then demand more. They charged me $4099 the made me sign a statement saying all the charges where legit. One of them was walking me home until I looked the other way then she bolted down a dark ally. The "strippers" are just what they say. They strip you of all your money then throw you to the curb. Another wonderful thinging about Poland. BEWARE DO NOT GO INTO THE BASEMENT!!! Scam, ruthless just mean. Liars and total scam artists. I will try to get my money back but if you like being extorted, held against your will and watch as the "manager" keeps running you card even after you said NO then good luck. I really thought I was going to eng up in an alley with a bullet in the back of my head. I hope the rest of Poland is better. It was the single worst experience in my life. I will get pictures later.

Exceptionally safe city, when comparing to Western Europe or US ( although US is a nightmare comparing to Poland). Reasons are: homogeneous society, no immigration, uniform wages, high level of education and strict weapon control (it is almost impossible to get a permit)
