DAYLIGHT savings time in Slovakia will begin on Sunday, March 25 at 02:00, when the time will skip one hour forward to 03:00.

Daylight savings time was used in the Czechoslovak Republic between 1916 and 1918 and again between 1940 and 1949. After an almost 30-year break, daylight savings time was reintroduced in 1979.

Daylight savings time was introduced to save energy and make better use of natural daylight. However, some claim that it does not make any real difference in terms of savings and that it violates people's bio-rhythms, making them more susceptible to illness.
