Bulgaria Unwinds Clocks by Hour on Sunday
According to psychologists one needs a fortnight to adapt to the new rhythm.
In accordance with chronology rules installed by the Bulgarian government, the country switches to Daylight Saving Time for the period between March 27 to October 30 every year.
Bulgaria introduced the time-saving switch in summer and winter in 1979, almost seventy years after it was applied for the first time in Great Britain, in 1908.
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.
