    Staying safe on a trip to Prague


    Just like other major cities around the world, Prague has its fair share of accidents and, sadly, crime, with pickpocketing, car break-ins and car-thefts being the most common reported incidents, although muggings and robberies are also occasionally reported in certain areas of the city.

    Pickpockets

    Here are a few hints on preventing having your belongings lifted by pickpockets:

    • Never carry a lot of cash. There are plenty of ATMs, so take cash out as and when you need it.
    • Carry your passport, but leave a copy of it and other important documents in your hotel’s safe deposit box.
    • Take extra care on crowded subways and trams and avoid getting squeezed into crowds, especially when visiting Prague’s historical centre.
    • Use a money belt, as handbags can easily be whipped out of your hands or off your shoulder.
    • Avoid taking out your wallet in very busy areas and never change money on streets.

    Very busy tourist areas demanding extra care include:

    • Karlova Street
    • Melantrichova Streets
    • Charles Bridge
    • Old Town Square
    • Tram 22

    You should also exercise extra care in busy stores.

    Car crime

    Prevent car thefts and break-ins by never leaving valuables in your vehicle and parking it in parking garages, rather than on the street. You can find safe areas to park here.

    Unsafe areas

    While violent crime is comparatively rare and the city is relatively safe even after dark, there are a few areas visitors should avoid if possible in order to prevent falling victim of pickpockets or violent assaults. These areas include Wenceslas Square (a well-known haunt for pickpockets) and Prague train station and the park outside it, both of which are known not to be especially safe after dark.

    Other risks

    Then, of course, there is the risk of having an accident in Prague. You could sustain personal injuries by slipping, tripping or falling at your hotel, a restaurant or in a shop, for instance, or you could be involved in an accident on the road.

    Slips, trips and falls, like traffic accidents, can often be avoided by simply being alert, looking out for potential slip, trip or fall hazards and watching other road users carefully.

    When holidays turn bad

    Should you sustain an injury by a trip, slip or fall, a motoring accident or indeed any other kind of accident in Prague, you could be entitled to make a travel accident claim. Accident Advice Helpline solicitors can help you get the compensation you are entitled to. Call our freephone number today on 0800 689 0500 to learn more.
