3. Security: All Americans are advised to be continually
aware of their surroundings, alert to suspicious activities
or individuals and to avoid large gatherings. With regard to
crime, Prague is normally a very safe city by U.S. standards
but visitors are encouraged to exercise common sense
precautions and to be particularly wary of Prague's famously
efficient pickpockets and scam artists. Special caution is
warranted in and around train stations and when boarding,
riding or exiting trams. When taking taxis, we recommend
visitors insist that the meter be used or that travelers
agree on a fare with the driver in advance.
