Pickpockets and petty thievery on Prague’s streets

I feel safer walking through neighborhoods in Prague than I do in a similarly sized city in the US. Czechs are accustomed to walking as a means of transportation, and the city’s streets are generally dotted with people, even in the evening, doing their shopping heading to restaurants, or just walking their dogs. Apart from the center of Prague, which is inundated year-round with tourists and known as a prime pick-pocket spot, Prague’s neighborhoods seem to have a low incidence of crime against pedestrians, although auto theft is common.
