A Polish company decided to give all fans of the Harry Potter franchise a dream come true at the Czocha College of Witchcraft and Wizardry, located in Poland. This Live Action Roleplay event takes place a couple days a month and hundreds of people come to learn spells, potions and even sleep in a castle. While it is not an exact replica of the Harry Potter series, this company aims to give visitors a glimpse into another potential school, set in the same world.

#3 Weird “Schools” from around the World: Mermaid School




Located in Montreal, Canada, the mermaid school AquaSirène swims a strange mix between exercise and fun. Students put on a pair of fins and swim, but also bond over their love of mermaids. Courses include intros on mermaid photoshoots, kids parties and a special landlocked mermaid package, where people pay for a professional mermaid to swim in a pool at their party. Crazy? Maybe, but also whimsical and fun too.
