How safe is Krakow?

Krakow is safe for female but there was a lot of cat calling, especially when i was younger. My recent encounters with strangers, especially men, are in polite manner, I dont know if times changed or maybe because I look older now. People are friendly and happy to help of they are not risking anything.

Krakow is a city that you can feel safe at any time :) sometimes there are drunk people around but it doesn’t change the general attitude of the city. Using public transportation is also safe people are quiet and respectful.

Extremely safe! you can easily walk alone in the evening, use public transportation. I have friends from all around the world being surprised how safe they feel In Krakow and Poland in general. Obviously it’s worth being safe and cautious everywhere, but Poland overall is safe.

I lived in Kraków for 18 years, near Kazimierz, which my parents recall as not safe to go after dark, but this was years ago, now its really safe, i never had any dangerous situation. I used to go to school which was on Kazimierz, so i spent a lot of time there, i can recomend plenty of places to go :))

Ive been living here for 7 years now and never had any unpleasant incidents, which coming from a person who loves late night walks says a lot! The city is beautiful and safe, great for solo travelers!

Krakow is beautiful and safe. There are many foreigners from different countries. I recommend visiting it, especially the castle Wawel.

I consider Kraków a safe place. You can walk around at night. There is no risk of being kidnapped or threatened with gun. As in every big cities you should watch out for muggers (especially in crowded places).

Kraków it's my favorite city in Poland! I love the architecture and food. Oh the food is amazing 🤩 I love to spend time just walking around in old town and kazimierz. Kraków is a little bit expensive but not too much. I never experienced robbery or something like that. I always feel safe in Krakow. The public transport is really good working. I stay in private room with shared bathroom and it was okay. I really recommend visiting Krakow.

Love this city, I have been here many times and always the food and culinary experience is impressive and a good value for money. I highly recommend to visit this city. For cultural experience the Salt mines and Auschwitz is also very interesting to see.
