Daylight Saving Time ends on Sunday

Daylight Saving Time ends in Slovakia on Sunday, October 28, when clocks will be set back one hour from 3 a.m. to 2 a.m. CET. It will begin again on Sunday, March 30, 2008.

Daylight Saving Time was used in the Czechoslovak Republic from 1916-1918 and later from 1940-1949. After a break of almost 30 years, it was reintroduced in 1979.

In 1998, Daylight Saving Time ended in October for the first time. Until then, it had ended in September.
