Time in Turkey
The exact time in Turkey is based on the time zones for Turkey. We will always try to give you the exact time for Turkey. There might be slight differences, since the time zones for Turkey might change due to daylight savings time (DST).
Time changes in Turkey are usually done to adapt citizen and tourist activity to the solar cycle. This allows for greater usage of daylight, reducing dependency on electricity. That is why the time is sent ahead one hour in the spring for Turkey, and falls back one hour in the fall for Turkey. Adding an extra hour of daylight helps Turkey to improve its tourism and depend less on Turkey's electricity supplies.
