It’s nearly that time of year again when the clocks go back for winter, giving people an extra hour in bed, in a practice that will soon be coming to an end for some EU countries.
What time do clocks go back in Cyprus? Clocks in Cyprus will turn back one hour at 4am on Sunday 25th October 2020, marking the official end of summer time and the start of winter time.
Under a European Commission proposal adopted in September 2019 and backed by the European Parliament, the European Union plans to stop clock changes in 2021.
As a result, the clock change in March 2021 will be the last one for EU countries that decide to permanently keep their summer time.
Member states that prefer to keep their standard time will change the clocks for the last time in October 2021.
