Special? No. This is honestly the place I've felt safest. I walked around at all times of day and night by myself and never had any problems or felt unsafe. It was wonderful. There were a couple of break-ins in the suburbs, but no one got injured. Random violence is very infrequent. - Sep 2015

None other than the usual stuff that comes with big cities. If there are any anti-American feelings left, they are mostly hidden among the old generations. We are advised to avoid gatherings and football matches. - Aug 2015

Not really. Pretty low crime, very little violent crime and what there is is often targeted and related to organized crime. The biggest threat is soccer hooligans and being caught in the wrong place at the wrong time after a contentious game. Driving can be a little aggressive. - Aug 2015
