Be smart while traveling.

Poland has a low crime rate but there are still a few rules you should always keep in mind while traveling anywhere in the world.

  1. Thieves and pick-pockets operate mainly at tourist destinations, railroad stations, trams or the busy city center.  Be aware of this and stay on alert.  Keep your valuables hidden.  Don’t leave them in plain sight inside your vehicle.
  2. Use only legitimate currency exchange offices.  You will find them in shopping malls, at the bank or in the city center.
  3. Never give anyone your passport so that it is out of reach.
  4. Travel in a group when going out after dark.
  5. Avoid all demonstrations, protests and political issues.
  6. Avoid sketchy places, especially nightclubs.
