Clocks switched to winter time

Ljubljana, 29 October - Clocks in Slovenia were turned back by an hour at 3am on Sunday, as the country switched from daylight saving time to winter time to have more light in the morning. Winter time will be in place until 10 March 2024.

Although the general idea is that clock switching allows for better use of natural daylight, the move is becoming increasingly unpopular.

In 2018, the European Commission proposed its abolishment, but member states could not agree on the same time. While some favour winter time, other would like to keep daylight saving time.

Clocks will thus continue to be turned at least until 2026.
