Romania switches to daylight saving time this weekend

Sunday, March 26, will be the shortest day of the year in Romania, as the country will switch to daylight saving time, also known as summer time.

On Sunday morning the clocks will advance one hour, which means that 3:00am and will become 4:00am.

Some might find it difficult to get used to the new time, as they will sleep one hour less. Doctors say that some might need around a week to adjust to summer time, while others might be really affected by the change, especially if they suffer from certain health problems.

After the hour change, the difference between Romania and the official Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) will be of three hours.

The daylight saving time is valid between the last Sunday of March and the last Sunday of October, when 4:00am will become 3:00am.
