Gringott's is the wizarding bank, which is run by goblins. Quite possibly the safest place in the wizarding world, next to Hogwarts, of course.

“[Hagrid and Harry] had reached a snowy white building that towered over the other little shops. Standing besides its burnished bronze doors, wearing a uniform of scarlet and gold, was – ‘Yeah, that’s a goblin,’ said Hagrid quietly as they walked up the white stone steps toward him. The goblin was about a head shorter than Harry. He had a swarthy, clever face, a pointed beard and, Harry noticed, very long fingers and feet. He bowed as they walked inside. Now they were facing a second pair of doors, silver this time, with words engraved upon them:

Enter stranger, but take heed
Of what awaits the sin of greed,
For those who take, but do not earn,
Must pay most dearly in their turn.
So if you seek beneath our floors
A treasure that was never yours,
Thief, you have been warned, beware
Of finding more than treasure there.

‘Like I said, yeh’d be mad ter try an’ rob it,’ said Hagrid.

            A pair of goblins bowed them through the silver doors and they were in a vast marble hall. About a hundred more goblins were sitting on high stools behind a long counter, scribbling in large ledgers, weighing coins in brass scales, examining precious stones through eyeglasses. There were too many doors to count leading off the hall, and yet more goblins were showing people in and out of these.”

Once you enter one of the doors leading off the hall, you will be met by, “a narrow stone passageway lit with flaming torches. It [slopes] steeply downward and there [are] little railway tracks on the floor.”
