Time Zone and Daylight Saving

The Finnish time is two hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time. There is only one time zone covering the whole country. Daylight saving time / summer time (= kesäaika) is used from the last Sunday of March to the last Sunday of October. Clocks are adjusted forward one hour near the start of spring and backward in autumn. The shift is usually done on Sunday mornings so that it does not cause extra difficulties.
