Tourist facilities are not as developed as in Western Europe and many of the goods and services taken for granted in other European countries are not available. The crime rate is moderate, but police forces are understaffed and under equipped, and police are unlikely to speak English. Foreign tourists and students are the most common targets of street crime, which is seldom violent. Most thefts occur in crowded tourist sites or on buses or trains, and thieves usually work in groups or pairs. Occasionally groups of children surround victims to distract them while one of them picks their pockets.
