I know that there are places inspired by Harry Potter and the Wizarding World, but nothing isn’t most magical that the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizarding itself. Hogwarts is become one of the most dreamy imaginary places of all; I believe that almost every person who watched the movies or read the books would love to be there, taken classes or, even living there. To celebrate it awesomeness, I’m sharing with you my top five places inside the castle.
"It was lit by thousands and thousands of candles that were floating in midair over four long tables, where the rest of the students were sitting. These tables were laid with glittering golden plates and goblets. At the top of the hall was another long table where the teachers were sitting … It was hard to believe there was a ceiling there at all, and that the Great Hall didn't simply open on to the heaven."A part of the facade of Hogwarts, the first thing we able to see is the Great Hall. Here we meet those who would become our best friend, see how the different Houses interact, were serve our most favorite dishes and do plenty of others magical practices. The Great Hall was the set of the start and the end of Harry’s run in his magical career: The Sorting Hat ceremony and the last battle between Harry y Voldemort. Christ Church in Oxford University serves as model for the films.
"You know the Prefects' bathroom on the fifth floor? It's not a bad place for a bath."The first time we know about this bathroom is thanks to Cedric Diggory in The Goblet of Fire, when he advice Harry to take his egg there. Then, on The Half-Blood Prince, we know that Harry is granted to use the bathroom along with Hermione and Ron since they all become prefects and Quidditch Capitan respectively. I would totally want to have a bathroom like it (without Myrtle, of course), it describes as a huge room with a pool-like bath, multicolored pipes, bath robe, towels and we can assume that there’s also soap, bath oil, bath powder, salts, shampoo, hair spray, conditioner and plenty of other awesome bath articles.
"One thing was certain: of all the teachers' offices Harry had visited so far this year, Dumbledore's was by far the most interesting … It was a large and beautiful circular room, full of funny little noises. A number of curious silver instruments stood on spindle-legged tables, whirring and emitting little puffs of smoke. The walls were covered with portraits of old headmasters and headmistresses, all of whom were snoozing gently in their frames. There was also an enormous, claw-footed desk, and, sitting on a shelf behind it, a shabby, tainted wizard's hat -- the Sorting Hat."For the most part of the series, we saw this office ruled by Albus Dumbledore, while Harry spend lot of time there during his sixth year; We also get glimpse of Professor Dippet time thanks to Tom Riddle’s diary and then, during Severus Snape run in Hogwarts thanks to Snape’s own memories. We don’t know much about what’s in the office during that time but, Dumbledore, thanks to his long years of research, had very different objects there that could have been featured in their own books. I would totally want to been there to investigate each little magical artifact, also I can’t forget the gargoyle statue outside the office and it password “Sherbet Lemon”, that one that if the Headmaster don’t want you to enter his/her office, it won’t move.
2. Hogwarts Library
“The trouble was, it was very hard to know where to begin, not knowing what Flamel might have done to get himself into a book … And then, of course, there was the sheer size of the library; tens of thousands of books; thousands of shelves; hundreds of narrow rows."
Just as any bookworm, a library is a place of heaven, well, Hogwarts library is a massive cathedral-like room with more books we can even imagine. Through all the years, Harry, Ron and Hermione have gone there to look for information of any kind that helps them to solve their problems (mostly by Hermione insistence). I would be absolutely happy if I could be able to visit this library. BTW, Ron has a record for overdue thanks to Quidditch Through the Ages.
"It is a room that a person can only enter when they have real need of it. Sometimes it is there, and sometimes it is not, but when it appears, it is always equipped for the seeker's needs"
This is, in my opinion, the best place of all Hogwarts; it can give you anything you want as long as isn’t part of the Gamp’s Law of Elemental Transfiguration, so, it can’t provide food. It was used by Dumbledore’s Army reunion during the fifth year and to hide from the Carrows wrath om the second wizard battle, and by Harry, Draco and Voldemort (then Tom Riddle) to hide something. I wish it still could be useful after the damage of Deathly Hallows.
"Hundreds of seats were raised in stands around the pitch so the spectators were high enough to see what was going on. At either end of the pitch were golden poles with hoops on the end."
Who hasn’t imagined been there in the Quidditch pitch watching a game? Just imagine how would be watch a match in the field, like any other games as soccer or football. I definitely would want to go there.
