Time in Hungary

Last updated

Hungary is in the Central European Time (CET; Hungarian : Közép-európai idő) zone, which is one hour ahead of Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). The country observes Daylight Saving Time (DST). DST was first introduced in Hungary in 1916 and was observed until 1919. It was also in use between 1941–1949 and 1954–1957. DST has been in use again since 1980. [1]

In Hungary, the 24-hour clock is used in formal or informal settings, while the 12-hour clock is predominantly used informally. The time format is typically expressed as "hh óra mm perc," but the numeric forms "hh.mm" or "hh:mm" are also acceptable.

Hungary is represented in the IANA time zone database under the entry Europe/Budapest, in the file zone.tab. [2]

<span class="mw-page-title-main">Time zone</span> Area that observes a uniform standard time

A time zone is an area which observes a uniform standard time for legal, commercial and social purposes. Time zones tend to follow the boundaries between countries and their subdivisions instead of strictly following longitude, because it is convenient for areas in frequent communication to keep the same time.

<span class="mw-page-title-main">Summer time in Europe</span> Variation of standard clock time

Summer time in Europe is the variation of standard clock time that is applied in most European countries in the period between spring and autumn, during which clocks are advanced by one hour from the time observed in the rest of the year, with a view to making the most efficient use of seasonal daylight. It corresponds to the notion and practice of daylight saving time (DST) to be found in some other parts of the world.

tz database Collaborative compilation of information about the worlds time zones

The tz database is a collaborative compilation of information about the world's time zones, primarily intended for use with computer programs and operating systems. Paul Eggert has been its editor and maintainer since 2005, with the organizational backing of ICANN. The tz database is also known as tzdata, the zoneinfo database or the IANA time zone database, and occasionally as the Olson database, referring to the founding contributor, Arthur David Olson.

The UTC offset is the difference in hours and minutes between Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) and local solar time, at a particular place. This difference is expressed with respect to UTC and is generally shown in the format ±[hh]:[mm], ±[hh][mm], or ±[hh]. So if the time being described is two hours ahead of UTC, the UTC offset would be "+02:00", "+0200", or simply "+02".
