There are pickpockets in every large city in the world, in Budapest as well. They usually go in pairs or more. One of them is to steal the money or the valuables, while the others are there to keep you busy. This is possible only in crowded places. In such places, the victims cannot move quickly and have to pay attention to various things at once. Fortunately, police is present at these places, many times in civic disguise.

Most endangered places are tram line 4-6, bus lines 7/173 running across the city, and the city center stations of the metro lines. Shopping centers have their own inner security services to keep pickpockets out of the premises, with cameras implanted everywhere. The only time when such a place can be "dangerous" is during the Christmas shopping season. Finally, the large, crowded underpasses in the city are also places where pickpockets often cruise around. | Contact us
