Timezones

The timezones in Brazil

There are several timezones in Brazil. Countries with a large distance from West to East are often devided into two or more timezones to adjust daytimes to the position of the sun. Timezones are always computed relatively to UTC, the "Universal Time Coordinated".

In Brazil exists a time difference of up to 2 hours between the East and the West. Brazil has no time difference between summer and winter. A daylight saving time doesn't exist.
