Bulgaria is switching to daylight saving time Sunday, turning clocks one hour ahead.

At 3 am Bulgarian time on March 30, all clocks will be turned one hour forward, to 4 am. This means one hour less sleep. The new time will remain so until October 26.

The winter and summer daylight savings time were instated in Bulgaria in 1979 while they were introduced for the first time ever in 1908 in Great Britain to optimize the daylight hours.

The main idea behind this switch is to preserve energy by using natural light longer.
