Note: The islands of "Cape Verde are to the west of the African mainland.

Eastern European Time (EET) is one of the names of "UTC+02:00 "time zone, 2 hours ahead of "Coordinated Universal Time. The zone uses "daylight saving time, so that it uses "UTC+03:00 during the summer.

A number of African countries use "UTC+02:00 all year long, where it is called "Central Africa Time (CAT), although "Egypt and "Libya also use the term Eastern European Time["citation needed].



The following countries, parts of countries, and territories use Eastern European Time all year round:

The following countries, parts of countries, and territories use Eastern European Time during the winter only:

The following countries, parts of countries, and territories used Eastern European Time in the past:

Sometimes, due to its use on "Microsoft Windows,[4] FLE Standard Time (for Finland, Lithuania, Estonia,[5] or sometimes Finland, Latvia, Estonia[6]) or GTB Standard Time (for Greece, Turkey, Bulgaria) are used to refer to Eastern European Time.


Since political, in addition to purely geographical, criteria are used in the drawing of time zones, it follows that time zones do not precisely adhere to meridian lines. The EET (UTC+2) time zone, were it drawn by purely geographical terms, would consist of exactly the area between meridians 22°30' E and 37°30' E. As a result, there are European locales that despite lying in an area with a "physical" UTC+2 time, are in another time zone; likewise, there are European areas that have gone for UTC+2, even though their "physical" time zone is different from that. Following is a list of such anomalies:

Areas located outside UTC+2 longitudes using Eastern European Time (UTC+2) time[edit]

European winter
Colour Legal time vs local mean time
1 h ± 30 m behind
0 h ± 30 m
1 h ± 30 m ahead
2 h ± 30 m ahead
3 h ± 30 m ahead

Areas west of 22°30' E ("physical" UTC+1) that use UTC+2[edit]

Areas east of 37°30' E ("physical" UTC+3) that use UTC+2[edit]

Areas located within UTC+2 longitudes (22°30' E – 37°30' E) using other time zones[edit]

Areas that use UTC+1[edit]

These areas have sunrises and sunsets at least half an hour earlier than places on the UTC+1 meridian.

Areas that use UTC+3[edit]

Tripoints and borders between zones[edit]

Major metropolitan areas[edit]
