Clocks In Greece To Turn Back An Hour On Sunday October 27th

Don't forget that clocks in Greece will be turned back one hour on October 27.

On Sunday October 27th at 04:00:00 clocks in Greece will be turned backward 1 hour to 03:00:00 local standard time.

Following an EU survey where 80% of Europeans said they were opposed to the clock changes, the European Union has ruled to discard the time changing practice by April 2021. Consequently, each Member State will have to decide whether to remain permanently on 'summer time' or to change their clocks to permanent standard time, also known as 'winter time.'

Greeks will turn their clocks back to 'summer time' daylight saving mode on the last Sunday of March 2020.
