The world of Harry Potter is full of spectacular destinations, some less known than Hogwarts but no less stunning. One of those is the Ministry of Magic, the building where the laws of the Wizarding World are made. Each country has one – and the American Ministry is located in the Woolworth Building, one of the city’s earliest skyscrapers. It still stands tall today – but residents of the Keystone State don’t have to head to New York! We have our own Harry Potter lookalike in Pennsylvania – the Cathedral of Learning, one of the tallest buildings in Pittsburgh. This world-famous building in the University of Pittsburgh stands 42 stories tall and has some of the state’s most impressive architecture. When you step inside, it’s like you’ve been transported to a whole new world – one of magic and mystery.
