Eastern European Summertime (EEST)

The EEST is the daylight saving time (also called summertime) of the Eastern European Time (EET). The differences of the several time zones to each other are always specified in relation to the "Universal Time Coordinated" (UTC), the time on the prime meridian (zero longitude). In the summer the clocks are switched ahead by 1 hour.

The Eastern European Summertime is consistent with UTC +3 and applies to 15 countries.

There are some other countries, in which the clock strikes just the same hour. These countries have the same temporal distance to UTC (Universal Time Coordinated):
