When people decide to move to Barcelona, they need to look out for a few things: bureaucracy, housing scams, low salaries and petty theft. Although Barcelona, in general, is an easy and stress-free city, these matters can put a spoke in any well-organized plans.

The city can be quite dangerous. The city however is one of the most beautiful places in Spain and equally Europe. I recommend that anyone thinking of planning a trip abroad should strongly consider Barcelona as one of the first choices. The plane journey is short and it’s a cheap place to wine and dine.

Among the many beautiful cities in Europe, Barcelona is probably the most interesting one. It accounts for beautiful architecture, sided with superb beaches and year-round fun activities. However, with great amenities come great dangers; Barcelona is on the top of the cities with much burglaries happening especially around tourists.

Barcelona is an amazing city, however, someone moving here should be careful. Over the past years, due to the rise in tourism, petty crime has skyrocketed. Last August, we even experienced what was called a “crime wave”. Most people are pickpocketed at some point during their stay. To avoid this, I suggest using bags with zippers and dressing casual in the streets.
