Durmstrang Institute

The name of the third school of magicians, which in the fourth novel takes part in the Triwizard Tournament alongside Hogwarts and Beauxbatons, is Durmstrang.

The delegation from Durmstrang reaches Hogwarts "under the sea", so to speak. She emerges from Hogwarts Lake in a huge, ghostly ship.

There are wild rumors surrounding this institute. It is said that Durmstrang attaches great importance to the teaching of the dark arts. Draco Malfoy brags that his father would have preferred to enroll him in Durmstrang. It was only thanks to his mother that he ended up at Hogwarts, because she didn't want him to be so far from home.

It is not known in which country the Durmstrang school is located. Hermione says she is "in the far north," since fur hats were part of the school uniform.
However, Krum, one of Durmstrang's guest students and tournament representatives, is known to be Bulgarian. The names of the headmaster, Igor Karkaroff, and other Durmstrang students - such as Poliakoff - also have a distinct Eastern European feel.
During the Christmas ball of the Triwizard Tournament Viktor Krum tells his companion Hermine that there is hardly any light on the vast lands of Durmstrang in winter, but that in summer they can fly over lakes and mountains.

At least one thing seems to be certain that the Durmstrang Institute is not quite as splendid as it is at Hogwarts; and certainly does not offer the extraordinary luxury that Beauxbatons is said to have.
