The Cost Of These Iconic Pop Culture Structures Will Blow Your Mind

Rejoice! Harry Potter super fans! You don’t need to wait for the Hogwarts’ acceptance to get into The College of Wizardry. If you have few hundred euros to spare, you can get yourself ‘enrolled’. No, we are not talking about a theme park here. This is way more serious than a theme park; it is an event reserved for the super fans i.e. those who live and breathe Harry Potter.
