I was about to say the only time I've actually had trouble in Prague was
dressed in a tweed jacket in the metro during the morning rush hour. I
broke my cardinal rule "look scruffy" and paid for it with about £10 of
cash that was in my inside pocket. My wife's handbag was also targeted
but because of the way she "organises" her handbag all they got was a
handful of used kleenex.

Prague is no more prone to pickpockets than, say, Amsterdam. And as
Randy so rightly says, at least they won't hold you up at gunpoint like
they would in the US.
