Koldovstoretz (Russian: колдовсторец) is the Russian wizarding school. Students from Koldovstoretz play a version of Quidditch where they fly on entire, uprooted trees instead of broomsticks.[1]

A student from Koldovstoretz competed in the Wizarding Schools Potions Championship.


  • The name of this school is likely derived from the Russian words "koldovstvo" (колдовство), misspelt as "koldovsto" and meaning "witchcraft", and "tvoretz" (творец), meaning "creator". Together the words form a partially overlapping portmanteau with the meaning "(the) creator of magic". By another version, the second word is "dvoretz" (дворец), meaning "palace", that makes the whole name the "palace of witchcraft".
