In China, There Is A School That Resembles Hogwarts From ‘Harry Potter’

At first glance, the campus of Hebei Academy of Fine Arts in China will surely make you think of the Hogwarts school in ‘Harry Potter’.

This is because the structure resembles a castle with many tall towers and spires, similar to the fictional school. The placement of the windows are also comparable.

Designers of the campus shared that the design is actually inspired by European Gothic architecture.

According to China Central Television, the newly-built structure is set to open later this year as the university’s animation school.

Check out photos of the campus below:
