The Dom Tower (Cathedral Tower) of Utrecht is the tallest church tower in the Netherlands and the Gothic-style tower is the symbol of the city. The tower was part of the Cathedral of Saint Martin, Utrecht, also known as Dom Church, and was built between 1321 and 1382, to a design by John of Hainaut. The tower stands at the spot where the city of Utrecht originated almost 2, 000 years ago. The Oudegracht (Old Canal), runs through the center of Utrecht.

Windmills of Kinderdijk, Netherlans UNESCO WHS
Kinderdijk is a village in the Netherlands, belonging to the municipality of Molenwaard, in the province South Holland, about 15 km east of Rotterdam. Kinderdijk is situated in a polder in the Alblasserwaard at the confluence of the Lek and Noord rivers. To drain the polder, a system of 19 windmills was built around 1740. This group of mills is the largest concentration of old windmills in the Netherlands. The windmills of Kinderdijk are one of the best-known Dutch tourist sites. They have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997.
