This is one of those things where if you have to ask, you probably shouldn't be answered.
Compressed gasses are dangerous. They are more reactive and there are some very subtle safety threats (corrosion, embrittlement, detonation) that someone not skilled in the art will not be aware of.
I can't answer for Europe. But I'd be astounded if they weren't available.
We have a Equipment and Supply company here in the USA called McMaster Carr (there are several others such as Grainger) which sells compressed gas tanks. They may call them air tanks or propane tanks. You need to research the materials of construction to insure it is compatible with what you are going to put in it. We also have Laboratory Supply companies: Fisher, THomas, CMS, Sargent-Welch (sp?) that sell "lecture bottles". I am sure they are available over in the old country.
For instance, different gas mixtures are used in microbiology and may need to be mixed on site.
Anyway, take a look at those options in whatever country you live in.
Please remember these can be dangerous. For instance I hope you know that oxygen isn't flammable? But there have been documented explosions caused by high pressure oxygen and oil on the pipe threads attached to the cylinder. A little friction by tightening the fitting and BOOM!
Also remember, a nuclear blast has an over-pressure (delta P) of just ½ a Bar and it can easily level buildings. Be careful.
