Safety and Security

Prague experiences the usual petty crimes you would expect in any major capital. Crimes against foreigners are not unheard of, so it is worth doubling up on common sense and paying close attention to your surroundings. Be aware that women and small children, as well as men, can be pickpockets.

For more information and advice about personal security, visit your respective country's website:

  • U.S. Department of State

  • Ministère des Affaires Etrangères et Européennes

Climate and Clothing

With a central position in Europe, Prague is affected by weather patterns from both the east (Siberia) and west (Atlantic). July and August tend to be the warmest months, though the weather can be changeable with a fair number of rainy days mixed in with the sunnier periods. The weather stays reasonably mild during September and early October but gets noticeably colder after that (indeed early mornings can be pretty chilly during autumn months). Winters in Prague will often bring snow along with plenty of rain!

Summer clothing is not too much of a concern, but being appropriately dressed for winter is more important. Good quality clothing is readily available in Prague and it is possible to purchase everything you need once you arrive, however we recommend that you bring vital items with you. Shopping can sometimes be more of a chore than a joy when arriving in a new country. A warm coat, hat, gloves and boots are essential.
