This is the water tower in Puolivälinkangas, Oulu:

It's HUGE (that's why only part of it is in the picture ;))! When I was a child the tower was open for public and it was great fun to climb all those neverending stairs.

This is the water tower in Kiiminki:

I've more pictures, but I don't want to scare people more than I already have. :D

I found this amazing great website, with water-towers in many countries and places. For the picture of Leiden (the one Elmo tried to place here, go to Holland - Zuid Holland and then you will find Leiden.)

It's probably one of the most ugliest ones. And it's located in very central place, so it can be seen from far away... :(
