Time conversion

For convenience in human affairs, the world is divided in 24 time zones of 15° each.
Time zone 0 is limited by 7½° W and 7½° E (Portugal, England and Ireland) and local time in this zone is by definition Universal Time (UT).
View the World wide time zone map.

Greece is 2 hours ahead of Universal Time (UT+2).
Like most states in Europe, Summer Time or Daylight Saving Time is observed in Greece, shifting time forward on the last Sunday in March by 1 hour: (UT+3).
After the Summer months (on the last Sunday in October) the time is shifted back by 1 hour: (UT+2).

God gave watches to the Europeans and time to the Greeks"
