Koldovstoretz (Russian: колдовсторец) was the Russian wizarding school. It was one of the eleven schools registered with the International Confederation of Wizards. Students from Koldovstoretz played a version of Quidditch where they flew on entire, uprooted trees instead of broomsticks.
- 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".
