The timezone UZT in Uzbekistan

Timezones are always computed by their difference to UTC, the "Universal Time Coordinated". In Uzbekistan there is only a single tonezone at UTC+5. For example, New York is currently at UTC-4 in Eastern Time, so the time difference between New York and Uzbekistan is 9 hours.

Uzbekistan has no time difference between summer and winter. A daylight saving time doesn't exist.

No more daylight saving time in Uzbekistan

Due to the sun's orbit around the equator, the days are longer in summer (June to September in the northern hemisphere). Countries that switch to daylight saving time in the summer months align the daylight phase with the human rhythm. Unused bright morning hours are thus shifted into the evening (more information on daylight saving time here).

Due to its distance from the equator, the impact would be significant in Uzbekistan. Tashkent is located 4,600 km from the equator. A day in midsummer would then not last from 04:48 to 20:01, but from 05:48 to 21:01. Nevertheless, in 1991 it was decided to finally abandon daylight saving time in Uzbekistan.
