One of the World’s Most Beautiful Castles is also a School for Wizards

Isn't this a pretty castle? You'd think it would be a well-known tourist attraction, and it is, but mainly among Eastern European fans of a certain magical children's book series.

I‘m not really sure where to start with Mozna Castle. The middle of old nowhere would probably be quite accurate, but to be more specific, this Baroque behemoth lies in old Bohemia, otherwise known as Upper Silesia, Poland. The castle has 365 rooms and 99 spires. Its historical records only date back to the 17th century but excavations in the 20th century revealed medieval burial crypts and remnants of a presumed Templar stronghold. Curious to know more about the site featured on numerous lists for “the most beautiful castles in the world“, I discovered that not only can you stay overnight in its rather peculiar brand of luxury hotel accommodation, but the historic building is also home to a real-life Hogwarts school of wizardry…

Yes, you can enroll in the Quatronum, if you can read Polish. Otherwise, you might want to step over to Messy Nessy Chic to take a tour and see what this castle looks like inside.
