The Slytherin Common Room is the third moment of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Chapter 12, The Polyjuice Potion.


The Slytherin common room was a long, low underground room with rough stone walls and ceiling, from which round, greenish lamps were hanging on chains. A fire was crackling under an elaborately carved mantelpiece ahead of them.


As of now, you do not have to make Polyjuice Potion in order to get inside Slytherin's Common Room. Just come to this moment, click on the wall and it will slide open. After that, you can zoom in and explore Slytherin's Common Room.
