Bulgaria Set to Switch to Daylight Saving Time
Bulgaria is going to switch summer daylight saving time on March 28, the National Metrology Center has announced.
At 3 am Bulgarian time on March 28, all clocks will be turned one hour forward to 4 am Bulgarian time on October 31, 2010. So, all who are in Bulgaria on March 28, should not forget to put the hands of their clocks one hour forward!
Under chronology rules adopted by the Bulgarian government, the country switches to Daylight Saving Time for the period between March 27 to the end of October every year.
The winter and summer daylight savings time were introduced in Bulgaria in 1979 while they were introduced for the first time ever in 1908 in Great Britain to optimize the daylight hours.
Since 1981 European Community (EC) Directives have prescribed the start and end dates of summer time in member states. These are set as the last Sundays in March and October respectively.
