Well I hope nothing happens and you have a great time, but don't think you just need to be careful of pickpockets. There is also a lot of violent mugging, and unless you've ever had that happen to you (as I have) you maybe can't visualise it. My camera, wallet, passport, tickets, and everything else I had on me were taken. I resisted and ended up with three broken ribs and knife wounds. I can tell you, that does tend to mess up your holiday. That wasn't in Prague, but nowadays anything goes there.
Canon 5D & 7D (both gripped), 24-105L, 100-400L, EF-S 15-85, 50 f1.8, Tamron 28-75, Sigma 12-24, G10, A1+10 FD lenses, tripods, lights etc

Prague has change, it is pretty safe now. Very touristy and things are not as cheap as they used to be, so that in itself brings more law enforcement. Just stay in the main area and you have very little problems.

And borrow your dad's 18-55 the 18mm will be helpful for the building and churches stuff.

I think that an 18-55 and the 55-250 are a good choice to go with it will cover most situations.
