Our first stop on the Wednesday filming location tour? It’s Nevermore Academy, of course. For exterior shots of the school, the series used Cantacuzino Castle in Busteni, Romania. The neo-Romanian fortress was built in 1911 for Prince Gheorghe Grigore Cantacuzino, the twice-elected mayor of Bucharest and Prime Minister of Romania in the late 1800s and early 1900s. According to House Beautiful, Netflix used special effects to alter the design of the castle’s roof. The castle and its grounds, which includes a park, grotto, fountains, courtyard, and church, is open to visitors and tours.
