This means there will be no time changes in Armenia when the most clocks in Europe move 1 hour forward for DST on Sunday, March 25, 2012.

Permanently on “winter time”

Cities, including capital city Yerevan, will permanently stay put on “winter time”, Armenia Time, which is 4 hours ahead of Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

Armenia will be only 2 instead of 3 hours apart from most of the European Union during the daylight saving period, from March to October.
