When will the time change in 2024? Summer time 2024 / Winter time 2024

The time change in Romania is made twice a year in order to make longer use of sunlight. This year we will move to daylight saving time on March 31, 2024. Specifically on the night between March 30 and March 31, 03:00 becomes 04:00. When we switch to daylight saving time, we sleep an hour less. The day of March 31, 2024 will have 23 hours.

The purpose of this change is to use as much sunlight as possible, but some experts say that "clockwork" can have devastating long-term health consequences.

The return to winter time will take place on October 27, 2024, on Sunday, when 04:00 will become 03:00 and sunlight will be in the sky for fewer hours, so the night becomes longer. When we switch to winter time, we sleep an hour longer. The day of October 27, 2024 will have 25 hours.

As a general rule, switching to daylight saving time takes place on the last weekend of March, while switching to winter time takes place on the last weekend of October. Check the exact time!
