No doubt China is the Kingdom of Copycats, and a new building has taken the country’s penchant for copying to a magical new level.

A school that looks exactly like the Hogwarts School in the Harry Potter movies has appeared in Shijiazhuang, a small city in Hebei Province.

The school, despite it’s reputation for wizardy, actually belongs to the Hebei Academy of Fine Arts. The head of the college said the intention was not to copy Harry Potter; rather, they were simply “inspired” by European architects.
