I walked around in prague with very expensive equipment.

With sensible precautions (less than what you need in NY, for instance) I was fine.

I avoided the obvious stupid mistakes.

I felt much more unsafe in Madrid than in Prague.

The safest in Vienna.

Same here about Gdansk and Krakow where I go very frequently. Absolute sense of safety, I go around with my D800E, not a bit of a problem. In Argentina last December even though I had the camera in the backpack and I put the backpack in the front , I got 3 attempts to rob me, fortunately I was able to defeat them all 3 times.

I'm Argentine myself and when I go back to my country can barely walk around with my cameras. This wasn't like this years ago but it is now.
